Lantern Fest. 2015 You Would Think The Fish Would Go The Other Way

Thank You to the Participants of the Salish Sea Lantern Procession

Thank you to the 127 participants who braved rain, wind and cooler weather to participate in the Salish Sea Lantern Procession this past Saturday.

The seven foot sockeye salmon lantern has been invited to reside at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre. We look forward to next year’s Salish Sea Children’s Lantern Festival; working with our community partners to celebrate the Salish Sea’s life giving waters.
