Sunshine Lantern Festival 2017



SUNSHINE LANTERN FESTIVAL – Sunday 22 October 2017

The Sunshine Lantern Festival is a free community event that takes place in the busy Sunshine shopping precinct along Hampshire Road, Sunshine on Sunday 22nd October 2017, 10am to 8.30pm.

It will be a full day of family fun, entertainment, rides, street performers, music, food of may nations, magical Lion and Dragon Dancing, a Lantern Parade to celebrate the full moon and ending with spectacular fireworks.

Last year nearly 50,000 people came to enjoy the vibrant multicultural festivities and support the local businesses of Sunshine.

The Sunshine Lantern Festival is a popular traditional event celebrated in Vietnam and many other South-East Asian communities and here in Sunshine it brings our culturally diverse community together in a safe and fun environment while supporting our local businesses. It is the largest Lantern Festival in Victoria.

This year the bustling Hampshire Road, between Devonshire Road and Hertford Road will be closed to all traffic and will come alive with roving street performers, entertainment, children’s rides, jumping castles, pony rides, market stalls, street food, face-painting, lantern making and more.

A large performance stage and seating area will burst with local multicultural live entertainment in front of Sunshine Plaza. The new multi height statement stage will extend out from the Plaza boardwalk and feature 3 large LED screens showcasing the acts as they emerge.

Later in the day a vibrant and energetic Lion and Dragon dance complete with long string fireworks will take place along the Hampshire Road shopfronts leading a parade of children and their following families. The parade will be filled with light from 1,000’s of battery powered new animal shaped lanterns ending with an exciting display of Fireworks.

The Sunshine Lantern Parade is a free cultural community event staged and presented by the Sunshine Business Association and supported by Brimbank City Council and Multicultural Victoria.
