the 2024 Enchanted Windows celebrating 30yrs keeping the
light shining in our heart

The first Lismore Lantern Parade was held in 1994 in the heart of the city, and since 2008, CBD businesses have joined in the celebration of Lismore and the Lantern Parade by creating spectacular displays in their shop windows.


It has been a crazy roller-coaster over the last few years, but we are still here!

Lismore was flooded in 2017, then came the terrible Bushfires before COVID took its toll - then came the Great Floods of 2022!


So many Lismore businesses were devastated, but the Lismore spirit is strong and many have returned to the heart of the city, with new businesses showing their faith in our future and opening up amazing cafes, restaurants and shops.


The 2024 theme of the Lismore Lantern Parade Celebrating 30 years or Yesterday Today Tomorrow creates the motivation for the window displays, accompanied by lantern, fairy lights projections or shadow cut outs!


The Enchanted Windows Trophy is awarded to one business after a rigorous judging takes place, and the winner announced via local and social media, with the Trophy presented on the HeartBeats Festival Stage at the Lantern Parade


A CBD map is created with Enchanted Window displays clearly marked to enable people to wander “the block” and appreciate the creative illumination of businesses in Lismore.


The Enchanted Windows must be ready for judging on Tuesday June 18th and displays continue to Saturday June 29th.
