Lakes Entrance Lantern Festival

The Lakes Entrance Lantern Festival will be held on the foreshore on Saturday June 25th to celebrate the winter solstice and our wonderful part of East Gippsland.

For the 3rd year we will ‘Light up the Lake’ and illuminate the night sky with our parade of beautiful hand-made lanterns – many created by our local school children.

The afternoon will start at 2pm with local market stalls, great food trucks and live music.

The parade will commence at 6pm and will be lead by the local CFA (assemble from 5:30pm at the Rotunda). If you don’t have a lantern you will be able to purchase one on site prior to the parade.

This is a family friendly, fun and free event! Get our your winter woolies, gather some friends and have a wonderful evening in Lakes Entrance!

Proudly presented by LEADA.
