Create your own Lantern to light up the Great Barrier Reef Festival
Coming in 2021, for only the 2nd time in the festival program, is the Coral Sea Marina Resort Lantern Parade.
Departing from the Garden Bar, the Coral Sea Marina Resort Lantern Parade will bring a sea of light along the Bicentennial Boardwalk and down onto the foreshore. Here it will join the festivities of night markets, carnival rides and food stalls, ahead of the Fireworks by the Foreshore.
Two lantern-making workshops will be held prior to the event, hosted by the festival teams. Adults and kids can join in and make their own Lanterns on:
- 9th July – Workshop at Lure (10-2 pm)
- 31 July – Workshop at Lure (10-2 pm)
Come along and join in the creative fun with local artists Anita Pender and Liz Knight
Participants get to show off their creations on the evening of Friday, August 6, with first, second and third prizes awarded to the best lanterns made.
Judging will take place at the Garden Bar from 4.30pm, with the winner announced prior to parade kick-off at 6pm. Anyone who hasn’t been able to make a lantern can buy one from a pop-up stall on site and join the parade of lights.
Prizes will be available for best Lanterns on the night for the most colourful and the most creative:
- Adult Prizes – to be confirmed
- Kids Prizes – to be confirmed
