Like so many other events across the World affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lismore Lantern Parade has also had to postpone the annual event which was to be held on Saturday 20 June until 14 November 2020.  We hope that the pandemic will soon be over and we can all come together to celebrate at this time.

In the meantime, we will light'n the hearts of our lanterneers, dear friends, community and friends afar by producing  a virtual lantern parade (social distancing of course) to be held on Saturday 20 June 2020 and you're invited to be involved!

What we're planning to do is to ask our friends and family to decorate an old or new lantern, take a pic and send it to us by email or upload it to their social media account with #lightnthehearttag (make sure your pic is public) so we can include it in a wonderful montage procession to be  launched in June.

We'd also like you to be involved in a live streamed virtual parade (more details to come) where we are inviting everyone to display their decorated lantern in their garden, front yard, window or shop front and play some music, bang some drums or sing to your hearts content to celebrate a brighter future together as we come out of this terrible time. Wouldn't it be so wonderful if we had whole streets and neighbourhoods of lanterns dancing with hope and joy as we light'n the hearts across the world.
