This year’s Lantern Parade will again light the longest night this winter. In 2020, Belgrave will be transformed into a glowing art installation woven throughout the township.
The thought of Winter and a Winter Solstice without a Lantern Parade was too much to bear. So, we’ve revised it, reinvented it and made it fit for purpose, while making it safe.
Keeping the glow in 2020 will see a group of local artists leading a series of on-line video tutorials for the community.

ABOUT THE BELGRAVE LANTERN PARADE & WINTER SOLSTICE
The Parade celebrates the Winter Solstice – our shortest day of the year. It marks the midst of Winter in our cycle of seasons, but most importantly it heralds the turning point – the new beginnings as we turn toward Spring and the blossoms of the Hills that are just around the corner.
The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and the longest night. All over the world people come together in their communities to acknowledge this important moment, celebrating with festivals, food, music, rituals, costumes, arts and more. Come and express yourself with your lanterns, your outfits, with your community group, with your sense of creativity and your festive spirit.
