lantern festival coming soon

With less than one week to go it's time to hone your lantern making skills for this year's Lantern Parade, Make it Yours, in Belgrave. 2010 marks the fourth year of this terrific community celebration of winter solstice.

Me at last year's lantern festival, every year the festival goes from strength to strength, great to parade or just to watch, there's something for everybody.

You can come along and walk in the parade with your lantern or join onlookers along Burwood Highway to watch the beautiful display of lanterns created by a diverse group of community members.

If you're marching in the parade assemble from 4:45pm at Hayes Car Park (in between Book Barn and La Collina) where you'll start the parade by walking down Blacksmiths Way at the rear of the shops.

For those coming along for viewing, the parade is due to start at 5:30pm. Make it Yours Belgrave Lantern Parade includes music, circus performance, drumming and much much more. It's a wonderful event, I've always been a keen supporter of the festival assisting wherever I can to make sure the event is a success.
