Lismore Lantern Parade Festival
The Lismore Lantern Parade is an annual community arts festival held on or around the longest night of the year, being the Winter Solstice. This year is the 21st anniversary of the event.
The Lantern Parade attracts in excess of 25,000 people each year and provides a safe and enjoyable experience for all those involved. The festival celebrates community, art and nature with arts, crafts, workshops, regional cuisine, a spectacular parade, lanterns, parade bands, street theatre, music, carnival dancers, illuminated puppets, fire art and pyrotechnics.
There will be market stalls and entertainment in the heart of the city throughout the day, followed by the dazzling parade through the streets, culminating in the mesmerising fiery finale at Oakes Oval.
