Salish Sea Lantern Festival 2019
In 2019, Renee Sampson and the SENĆOŦEN Immersion singers performed traditional songs and Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright, of the Wilds, brought their great Eco-Rock vibes. Following the performances, members of the community participated in a parade, carrying beautifully illuminated hand-built lanterns that reflected in the waters of the Salish Sea.
