Celebrating its 11th year the Belgrave Lantern Parade has long been warming the heart of its residents. Saturday 24 June 2017 from 4pm to 8.30pm in Belgrave, symbolising the move back to warmer times, sunshine and spring, the main road closes for the community and friends to reclaim the streets for a few hours. The Parade assembles in Hayes car park around 5pm with amazing lanterns. The streets will be filled with entertainment and local food vendors, campfires to keep you warm, musicians, a circus, and more will be in the 'Village' area of Hayes car park.

Attendance is free. You can either watch or be a part of it. If you want to be in it, please carry a lantern or be illuminated if you want to be in the parade. If you're making your own lantern, there are plenty of tips on the website.

If you don't have a lantern, don't worry. You can join one of the lantern making workshops HERE. Start booking as the workshops begin on 3 June 2017 (Simple & Intermediate); 4 June 2017 (Advanced); 10 June 2017 (Simple & Immediate); 11 June 2017 (FREE community workshop); 17 June 2017 (Simple & Intermediate).
