Ottawa Lumiere Festival

  • Date: Aug 2 - 23, 2014
  • Location: Ottawa

Description

This unique lantern festival, held in August, calls for visitors to carry their own creative sources of light. Workshops are held in the preceding months to teach folks of all ages to make their own lanterns. On the big day, the area from St Patrick's Street Bridge to Stanley Park in the New Edinburgh neighborhood is lit up with these colorful projects. Storytelling, face-painting, singing, dancing, and theater sessions on these streets create a lively atmosphere. People are encouraged to wear fancy costumes, turning the event into a festive street party. For sponsorship opportunities, workshops and event details, look up the web site.
