For those of us living in the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice marks the shortest day of the year, so what better than to celebrate the elongated night with lanterns, fire, singing, drumming, music and dancing!?
These five little festivals are community-based and reflect the unique nature of each neighbourhood. Intimate and accessible, each invites your participation. Wherever you wind up, it is a chance to feel connected to a community, city, as well as the universe.
When: Winter Solstice, December 21st, 2013
Time: 6pm - 10pm
Cost: Lantern processions are free to watch, and donations encouraged.
Lantern making workshops cost between $5-$30 per lantern.
