Winter Solstice Lantern Festival
A False Creek Community Association
Partnership with the Secret Lantern Society
Friday December 21, 7:00 -10:00 pm
The winter solstice marks the gentle shift of our planet’s eternal relationship with the sun. This dance of sun and earth has inspired celebrations of the human spirit, expressed through art and music, throughout the ages. Our own Winter Solstice Lantern Festival illuminates the darkest night with a multicultural array of lanterns, fire, singing, dancing, music and story telling. Please join us and add your special light to the longest night! www.secretlantern.org
Don’t be left lantern-less! Artists from the Secret Lantern Society will help you make your own beautiful lantern. All materials are provided and participants are encouraged to bring pressed leaves and flowers or other decorative elements. Price is per lantern so parent & child can create one lantern together. Children must be accompanied by an adult. *Additional time to finish lanterns will be available on Sunday Dec. 16 from 10-4pm (free with registration to any workshop). To participate in the lantern making please call the front desk to register at 604-257-8195 ext 1.
