  • Belgrave Lantern Parade - Photographer: John Weeks

The 11th annual Belgrave Lantern Parade promises another amazing celebration of creativity and community in the Hills.

The 11th annual Belgrave Lantern Parade promises another amazing celebration of creativity and community in the Hills.

Each year, the Lantern Parade brings together the community of the Hills in a celebration of friendship, light, warmth and creativity on the shortest day of winter. The street is reclaimed for the people and thousands flock to take part in one of the best and biggest community-made spectacles as hundreds of lanterns line the main street, accompanied by drummers, dancers and performers of all sorts.

There is also a lineup of fabulous performers and events before and after the parade, and the parade village with fire pits, food stalls and community signing into the night.

There are a whole range of Lantern Making Workshops on weekends at Belgrave Library leading up to June 24. Check all the dates and booking information on the Lantern Parade website.

If you would like to become a part of the Belgrave Lantern Parade, or know more, visit the website, call or email. Remember to walk, ride, catch a train or share a lift to the parade in 2017 – and leave the car at home.
