Winter Solstice Lantern Festival this Saturday, Dec 21

The days are certainly becoming short. I’m really feeling the darkness of winter closing in on me. Good news after Saturday the days get longer so we have gone through the worst of it. It is the 20th Annual Winter Solstice Lantern Festival this Saturday produced by the Secret Lantern Society and their artistic director Naomi Singer. As the society likes to describe the event, “one festival, many neighbourhoods”. This year the festival is at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, False Creek and Roundhouse Community Centres. New this year is a late night dance at Astorino’s. The event always needs volunteers and please make a donation, these events run on a shoe string budgets and they are professional artists who need to be paid.
