Joondalup Festival Twilight Lantern Parade.. 'Our Curious Landscape'.



One of the highlights of the Joondalup Festival is the Twilight Lantern Parade. First time viewed for me. I was blown away by the creativity of the entrants. A participative community arts event, with wondrous creations by school students, community groups and professional artists. The theme this year 'our curious landscape'..


There was so much more to see, but there was a point when I stopped to just enjoy and although I absolutely appreciate the work that went into the above I have to confess the excitement of the littlest participants holding their simple lanterns aloft so preciously was the most entertaining and a delight to see. Once again taking photos at night without a tripod.. très difficile! Can't believe the weekend is overs already, well mine anyway :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  33. While this place gets a little crowded and you might have to push through occasionally, it's hard not to mention that a definite plus in New York venues is that you'll rarely have to wait on line in their large bathrooms.
