  • Departs at 7:00pm at Slocan Park
  • As the moon rises and the sun sets, musicians, dancers and the giant moon lantern prepare the way for the twilight lantern parade along Renfrew Ravine. The parade follows the trails along the ravine, accompanied by live music as darkness falls. Passing by the river-stone labyrinth, the procession is invited to a walking meditation surrounded by music and light.

  • 7:30-8:45pm at Renfrew Community Park
  • The parade crosses the street, leaves the streetlights, and descends into a transformed world of the stream, Still Creek, lined with lights, floating lantern art, and ethereal music. Time slows down as community members pause to absorb the beauty of candlelight, exquisite lanterns, and the gently shimmering stream. Just outside of the stream, you’ll find musicians playing at the main stage, the food service at the Tea Garden and a mobile-friendly lantern walk for all to enjoy.
