it's raining again....

Our thoughts and love go to any of you affected once again by the weather… we have had some very sleepless nights in the passed week. We are still working away in the lantern workshop and helping hands are most welcome!!! Message or RING Jyllie on 0412 732 102.

The Lantern Parade costs a lot to produce - security, staging, traffic control - we we rely on DONATIONS (and ticket sales) from people in the STREET who love the PARADE. We are looking for reliable, responsible people to help us collect donations
during the parade.

URGENT CALL OUT for people to take part in the FIERY FINALE!! Training provided if carrying fire. Rehearsals on Sunday 18th June, and Friday 23rd June 4.00pm – 7.30pm. AND of course SHOW DAY 24 June.

Sadly we have had to cancel the Photographic Exhibi@on at Fox Photo Den, people just did not have the energy to enter their photos, another time.

That darn rain has left the venue for the planned Viking Solstice Village too soggy for camping sadly and so the proposed Viking invasion of Lismore has had to be postoned. 


The Vikings posted this message on Facebook:

"Thanks to the capriciousness of the rain gods, Jolley Field is too wet for us to set up camp. So like real Vikings of old, we're going to return when it is warmer and dryer and continue with our plan to raid and ransack Lismore ... no, I mean ... put up our village and settle down, be good neighbours and traders ... yeah, that's exactly what I meant. Come see us on Jolley Field on 19/20 AUGUST."

Our fabulous parade manager Stef has arrived from Melbourne, unfortunately she has left her voice behind. Hopefully she will be ringing schools, marshals and lanterneers very soon. AND of course we need LANTERENEERS and MARSHALLS for the parade - call Stef 0410 506 878.

Finally, please support the Lantern Parade by purchasing your ticket for the Fiery Finale – you can purchase them ON-LINE through our website here or at the Lismore VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE, Molesworth St. 1300 87 83 87

The Lismore Lantern Parade is nearly here – TIME TO GET INVOLVED!!

Warm regards
Jyllie and the Lantern Crew
