Celebrate Multiculturalism and Diversity
Follow a trail of lanterns as they light up Brisbane's Southbank Parkland skies as part of the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade to celebrate multiculturalism this winter.
Hosted by Multicultural Australia, the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade is set to bring the light to embrace all Queenslanders on Friday 23 October 2020 from 5:00 until 8:00 pm.
The lanterns are a metaphor for a sense of hope and include animals, storybook characters and famous faces. Past parades have seen giant lanterns of the Barry Humphries created character, Dame Edna Everidge, Australian koalas and the whimsical storybook character, Alice in Wonderland.
This will be the 13th year of this popular, annual event to shine a light on Queensland's rich culture, and its people.
Do you or your family and friends want to walk in the parade? Well, you can. Get a group together and walk as a community who says 'Welcome'. To get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you don't miss out of what promises to be a colourful spectacle. The parade can be found by entering Southbank Parklands through Little Stanley Street, South Brisbane. Register your interest to watch the parade here
The parade will be followed by a World music concert. So, get ready to embrace multiculturalism and inclusion at this year's LUMINOUS Lantern Parade.
