2020 Salish Sea Festival: A Week of Lanterns
August 16 @ 7:00 pm - August 22 @ 10:00 pmFREE
Due to COVID-19, the annual Salish Sea Lantern Festival and parade cannot proceed as planned; however, in its place ArtSea brings you the Salish Sea Festival: A Week of Lanterns, August 16-22, 2020. This is an opportunity for everyone to participate in building community spirit.
During the week of August 16th to 22nd, we invite the community to light up their lanterns (with battery-operated lights) each night at 7pm. Lanterns can be displayed on a front lawn, hung from a balcony, or displayed in a front window; anywhere that they are visible to the community and can be enjoyed by everyone. This is a wonderful opportunity to be creative and be part of a community project in a time when community is most important. Have your community block, cul-de-sa,c or street plan a lantern display together. Share your photos on the Salish Sea Lantern Festival Facebook page; there will be prizes for the best display! Stop by the Pier Hotel and see a display of Salish Sea Lanterns.
