The COVID19 pandemic has wrought much pain within our community. Some Lismore businesses have closed down or are struggling, others have been able to pivot and find new ways in which their business can operate, survive and even succeed! LightnUp in partnership with Lismore City Council and our wonderful supporters would like to support our business community as a part of the 'Lismore VIRTUAL Lantern Parade - Lightntheheart.'

The Enchanted Windows - reimagined project is about working in partnership with local businesses to create wonderful window displays to captivate, interest, build awareness and showcase the creative energy of Lismore to the thousands of people who visit the Lantern Parade through our online campaign, showing us off to the world.'

The Lismore VIRTUAL Lantern Parade's Enchanted Windows project will be free to register for businesses in the Lismore CBD and in South Lismore.

Each registered business receives a Lismore Virtual Lantern Parade Lightntheheart Pyramid Kit. They then decorate their shop front windows with lantern/s, fairy lights/projections, heart imagery and examples of their products. 

The windows must be on display from Saturday June 13 in the week leading up to the virtual festival June 20 and for at least the following week.


Participating businesses can choose to display their pyramid lantern with an LED candle (we provide 3 candles per kit, each lasting 24hours). Previously we offered an option to purchase a special pyramid lantern with a 240v light however these have now been sold out.


On June 13 all the windows will be photographed by a professional photographer and turned into a video to be uploaded onto a variety of internet platforms along with the community Virtual Lantern Parade lightntheheart on June 20, when LightnUp is also planning to install some of our fabulous feature lanterns around the CBD and in South Lismore and invite the community to drive or walk through the CBD/South Lismore and see the lanterns and your beautiful windows – the more amazing the better.


A dedicated map will be produced highlighting participating businesses and will be promoted through social media, our dedicated website and the media.


  • Participating windows must include lanterns, fairy lights or projections (at least one).

  • A display of the products/merchandise on sale through your business.

  • LightnUp Inc will supply one pyramid lantern with LED candles, and all materials required for decorating your lantern. Decorating is not compulsory, but it is fun, no expertise required!

  • Lanterns with 240 lighting systems can be purchased for $11, but there will be a limited supply and will be available on a first in first served basis. (SOLD OUT)

  • LightnUp will provide special Enchanted Windows banner for your window and Virtual Lantern Parade posters/fliers
