Lynbrook’s night sky was aglow with hundreds of luminous lanterns on display at the recent annual Lantern Festival.
Hosted by the Lynbrook Residents Association on Saturday 21 October, the event was in its sixth year with organiser Vanessa Watson saying attendees enjoyed the “magical experience.”
More than 500 lanterns floated along the Lynbrook Lake, with visitors also trekking through Banjo Paterson Park in a lantern walk.
Ms Watson said the about 600 white lanterns were sold for kids to paint, which were then tied to a rope on surrounding trees along Lynbrook Lake.
“At dusk they are taken on a lantern walk led by a stilt walker dressed as an angel lit with LED lights.”
She said the event was created as a way of bring the community together.
“The Lantern Festival is about bringing family, friends and neighbours together in a fun event with great atmosphere. Many friendships have formed after people have met at one of our events. We are really happy to hear these stories.”
A fire spectacular also captivated the audience with heart-stopping fire tricks. “Some of the tricks were nothing short of spectacular,” Ms Watson said.
