Lantern Celebration

Saturday 16th December 2017

NOTE: Rain date, Sunday 17th December 2017

The magical Lantern Celebration once again lights up Nelson.

Theme: Trail of Dreams

The celebrations begin with a sprinkling of sleep dust as you make your way up the hill, to the Centre of Aotearoa New Zealand. Along the track you will discover ethereal installations and surreal performances. Once at the top of the hill, listen to some dreamy music, watch the sun slowly set and join in the lantern-lighting ceremony.

Then it’s time to sleepwalk back down the hill to bed. Use your lanterns to light your way, bringing to life the wonders that the night offers.

Get creating and make yourself a homemade lantern. Remember to use a battery powered light to avoid fire risk.

Bring a picnic and warm clothing.
Children under 13 must be supervised by an adult.
This is a zero rubbish event.

Make your own lantern for this event at the workshops on the 9th & 16th of December.
