New to the Great Barrier Reef Festival program for 2019 is the Coral Sea Marina Resort Lantern Parade.
Be a part of something great and create reef-themed lanterns at two workshops – one at Lure Weddings & Events on July 24 from 6-8pm and one at the Cannonvale State School Fete 2019 on Sunday, July 28.
Show your creations off on the evening of Friday, August 2.
We’ll have first, second and third prizes up for grabs for the best lanterns made.
Judging will take place at HERE at the Garden Bar Bistro – Airlie Beach from 4.30pm, with the winner announced prior to parade kick-off at 6pm.
Anyone who hasn’t been able to make a lantern can buy one from a pop-up stall on site and join the parade of lights.
The lantern procession will make its way through the marina resort precinct, down the Bicentennial Boardwalk and into Airlie Beach.
Here it will join the festivities of night markets, carnival rides and food stalls, ahead of the Whitsunday Coast Airport Fireworks by the Foreshore.
The 2019 Great Barrier Reef Festival from August 1-4 is proudly sponsored by Cruise Whitsundays!
