Welcome to the first Lismore Lantern Parade Update for tthis year... doesn’t time fly!! It's less than two months to go…

This year we are very excited to be celebrating our 25th ANNIVERSARY!!

Were you there at the first ever Lantern Parade? Let us know if you were, as an adult or a babe in arms, we’d love to hear from you, contact us through the contact page on our website, Facebook page or email.

We have lots of exciting NEW elements, as well as new lanterns this year, so watch this space for news and how to be involved!

This year the festival will be celebrated over three days, with the main focus of activities in the Quad again, but wait there’s more …. and we’ll tell you soon!

Our theme this year, apart from celebrating our birthday, is 'RIVERS OF LIGHT', which is an expression of the hundreds of lantern processions that LightnUp we have created across Australia over the last 25 years, and their return to their source – Lismore!

There are so many ways you can be involved in the Lantern Parade, and right now here are a few:

• MARKET DELIGHT – have you applied to set up a yummy food stall yet this year? Applications are open for round two. Head to the 'Run a Market Stall' page of our website to apply.

• SCHOOL WORKSHOPS – Please send in your booking form as soon as possible. If your school has not received an invitation to participate, please get in touch.

• COMMUNITY LANTERN PROJECT – Did your Organisation or Group carry a lantern in the parade last year? Now is the time to choose your lantern for this year’s celebration. Applications are on the community lantern' page of this website.

• VOLUNTEERS – We have lots of opportunities to be involved. Give us a call!

There will be SO MUCH MORE, come and celebrate!
