The famous illuminated animals may not exactly be walking backwards tomorrow night but the Lismore Lantern Parade will travel in a reverse direction owing to weeks of wet weather.
With its usual finale site under water, the parade will now commence at Riverside Park and travel uphill through the city.
All of the usual markets and music stages in the CBD will run and there will be an additional benefit of a viewing platform for disabled people.
Lismore Council’s social planner Christine Minkov said the accessible viewing platform will ensure it’s easy for people with a disability and their carers to have a great spot amongst the large crowd without jostling to see.
To book a spot for the accessible viewing platform phone Lismore Council’s Customer Contact Centre on 1300 878 387.
