belgrave lights up

Last Saturday saw thousands of locals come out to support the Lantern Festival in Belgrave. Once again the festival was well supported by the community, the streets filled with people either watching the parade or locals marching with a cavalcade of creative lanterns.

The Mater Christi College School Band started the festival's proceedings by providing some street music.
The lantern festival is a great opportunity to be creative and be part of a wonderful community celebration.

The Belgrave Bendigo Bank are keen supporters of the lantern parade and were out in force supplying the crowd with glow products.

Stax provided entertainment while the crowds gathered.
The Crowd gathered at Hayes Car Park to assemble for the parade.

Emma from Tecoma Primary School led the parade with her Olympic Torch lantern.

Renata was joined by fellow Pharaohs to create this magnificent sphinx lantern.

The Upwey Scouts were there in an amazing lantern creation with room for the entire troupe.

Jordan Crooka from Sherbrooke Community School created a Sea Shepherd lantern, there's no doubting his passion for all things Sea Shepherd.

After the lantern parade, festival goers were treated to belly dancing and fire twirling.
