Lismore Lantern Parade 2015. Photo Tree Faerie.

The light of Lismore is the annual Lantern Parade held on or around the longest night of the year – the Winter Solstice.

The parade attracts approximately 25,000 people each year and is recognised as Lismore’s signature event. In 2019 the event will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a full weekend festival of events and activities.

A highlight of the event is the ‘Enchanted Windows’ project which sees storefront windows throughout the Lismore City Centre decorated with Lantern Parade themed displays. The project is designed to compliment the Lantern Parade and showcase the creative energy of Lismore to the thousands of people who come and visit the Lantern Parade over the weekend.

This year, in celebration of the Lantern Parade’s 25th Anniversary, participation in the Enchanted Windows project is free and includes free visual merchandising workshops with acclaimed innovator, agitator, and visual communicator Natalie Coulter from Belle Flaneur who created last year’s ‘Santa’s Wonderland’ display that was coordinated by the Lismore City Centre Manager.

Natalie will be providing the free Training Workshops with support from the Lismore Business Promotion Program.

The workshops will provide wonderful tips and tricks to help you create your very own window displays and installations plus photography and styling for social media.

The two-hour workshop will be run over three days to provide different days and times for businesses and will be held at The Gordon Pavillion, Oakes Oval, Lismore.

Date and times for the workshops will be:

Thursday 6 June, 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Friday 7 June, 7am – 9am & 5.30pm – 7.30pm
Saturday 8 June, 7am – 9am

The Lantern Parade events will take place in Lismore on the weekend of June 22 and 23.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
