Blackpool Tower gears up for summer season

THE Blackpool Tower is celebrating its 119th summer season at the famous seaside resort this year.
To celebrate, the tower will brighten up the Blackpool skyline by becoming draped in a 'diamond dress', made from 25,000 new eco-friendly LED lights, which can display millions of different colour combinations as part of the Illuminations season.
The iconic landmark is also undergoing an extensive regeneration project to ensure it remains a prominent attraction on Blackpool's promenade, with the new tower due to be unveiled in 2015.
