Lumière Lantern Festival Parade
November 26, 2015 @ 6:30 pm
The Lumière Lantern Festival is a magical experience. Build your own handmade lantern at one of our workshops, then join in the parade on Nov. 26, winding up with special performances and the Downtown Kamloops Lights in the Night celebrations. Let your imagination run wild – past parades have included a nine-foot dragon, a canoe, a lit skirt, a light bulb suit and tons of wonderful globes. Lantern or not, come and be a part of this magical winter evening in Kamloops.
