A CROWD of up to 50,000 is expected to pack into Huddersfield for the Festival of Light 2012.
Final preparations are being made today for the event, which kicks off tomorrow and runs through until Sunday.
Organisers are hoping for fine weather for the main event, which will feature high-wire acts above St George’s Square.

The programme includes an open-air disco in the Open Market and a three-metre tall illuminated puppet.
Audiences will also discover live music on King Street, light and fire installations in St George’s Square and St Peter’s Gardens and a myriad of street theatre shows and strolling performers around the town.
Also back by popular demand, a winter food and drink market will pop up on Byram Street, close to an indoor Art Arcade, with stalls and workshops, inside Huddersfield Methodist Mission.
The headline show, which starts at 7.45pm, is by high-wire artists Jade Kindar-Martin and Didier Pasquette.
