If you're like me and you're kicking yourself for missing out on last night's lunar eclipse, well at least you can take solace in tonight's Winter Solstice Lantern Festival. If you've ever been to Commercial Drive for the Parade of Lost Souls or Illuminaries at Trout Lake, I'd imagine it's along the same vein - lanterns, fire, drummers - Vancouver bohemian flair. Myself? I've never been to the event, but I'm hoping to check out the festivities at Britannia Community Centre because, heck, when else are you going to walk through a labyrinth of light?
Five Vancouver neighbourhoods will be hosting simultaneous events from 6pm onward. I've provided links to their individual schedules:
South-east False Creek
