Thanks to Artistic Director, Jennifer Witvliet and the volunteer lantern festival team!
Artistic Director, Jennifer Witvliet, and an amazing team of volunteers plan and deliver the annual Salish Sea Lantern Festival. This incredible team assembles jellyfish lantern kits, fish lantern kits, and star lantern kits, and provides lantern tutorials and workshops so that the community can create their own beautiful lanterns. They also create large-scale lantern displays around the Peninsula and organize the evening lantern parade along the waterfront in Sidney!
