Belgrave Lantern Parade has been warming the heart of Belgrave on Winter Solstice every year for the last 13 years. The event has become the highlight of the Winter season for our community bringing light to the darkness and signaling the coming of Spring. It reminds us that even in the darkest times, our supportive community can help light the way.
As always, this is a FREE inclusive event for the whole community!
Watch the event from the side of the road or join the parade. This year, we would love to see participating lanterneers thinking outside the box with creative illuminated costumes, props, musical instruments and of course, LANTERNS! Let your imagination run wild!
Hayes Carpark will become the Village with local food vendors, campfires to keep you warm, musicians, circus performances and more!
(P.S Hayes Carpark will be closed on the day to set up the magical community village space so please don't park there!)

Together, let's gather to celebrate community and friends by transforming Belgrave into a festival of light. We can't wait to see you there!
