2020 Salish Sea Festival: A Week of Lanterns

August 16 @ 7:00 pm - August 22 @ 10:00 pm

FREE

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.

ArtSea is offering several opportunities to build-your-own lantern, with online lantern-building tutorials and small, in-person workshops.

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 pagethere will be prizes for the best display! Stop by the Pier Hotel and see a display of Salish Sea Lanterns.
