The Lantern Parade festival is held in Lismore every year in June during the winter solstice. I visited their workshop yesterday to meet with the director of the festival about getting some TAFE students involved in making lanterns for this year's parade. The workshop is an incredibly surreal and creative place with massive figures and bright colours everywhere. The workshop has to move soon to another premises and they are fundraising at the moment to help that transition.
The Lantern parade group is available to make lanterns for other events too - and will have lanterns at the Byron Bay Blues Festival this weekend.
