CELEBRATING WINTER SOLSTICE & NEW BEGINNINGS

2016 marks the 10th annual event

Belgrave Lantern Parade

Saturday June 18th.

And it will mark the midst of winter in our cycle of season,

but most importantly it heralds the turning point and the new beginnings

as we turn toward Spring and the blossoms of the Hills that are just around the corner.

Activities start at 4pm

Road closes to traffic at 5pm

Parade starts at 5:30pm from Hayes Car Park.

If you'd like to join the parade,
we'd love you to start thinking about how you'll be lighting the way.

It is a request that participants carry a lantern or be illuminated
with the winter solstice theme if they are to walk in the parade.

Please help us make this our brightest parade.
