GBRCNY Lantern Festival

  • Chinese Friendship Gardens Greenslopes Street Edge Hill, QLD, 4870 Australia (map)

The Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day and marks the final day of the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations.

A new addition to the GBRCNY calendar The Lantern Festival will see revellers join together armed with lanterns for one unforgettable spectacle. There will be Lion & Dragon performers and music.

When the time is just right, we will light the sky with our highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams.

This will be a visual spectacle as the lanterns are always red to symbolize good fortune and we encourage everyone to join us in writing down their wishes for the new year and lighting their lantern.
