Create a Lantern or Light Installation for Lumière Lantern Festival

Workshops begin Nov. 2, gearing up to Nov. 26 parade
The Kamloops Arts Council’s biannual Lumière Lantern 1401750_686273621391963_1686398949_oFestival returns this November, offering a magical experience for all. Build your own handmade lantern at one of our workshops, then join in the lantern parade on Nov. 26, winding up with special performances and the Downtown Kamloops Lights in the Night celebrations.
At a series of lantern-making workshops starting Nov. 2, participants are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild. Past parades have included a nine-foot dragon, a canoe, a lit skirt, a light bulb suit and tons of wonderful globes. View photos from the 2013 event.
