Build your lantern on Sept. 8 at the North Delta Recreation Centre and show it off on Sept. 15 at Delta's Luminary Festival.

A workshop to light the way

Deltans prepare this Saturday for next weekend's Luminary Festival.

In preparation for Delta’s first Luminary Festival on Sept. 15, the Corporation of Delta is hosting a Luminary (lantern) Making Workshop this Saturday, Sept. 8, from 1-5 p.m. at the North Delta Recreation Centre, 11415 84 Ave.

Supplies are included with the $3 drop-in fee.

Be ready to bring your completed lantern to the Luminary Festival the following Saturday from 6-10 p.m. at Sunstone Park, 10400 Delsom Cr.

It’s an evening full of family fun, including lantern-making, busker entertainment, food vendors and crafts from 6-9 p.m., a lantern-lit parade of lights around the pond at 8:30 p.m. and a concert in the park at 9 p.m.

As there is no parking lot on site, a free shuttle service will be available from the North Delta Recreation Centre beginning at 6 p.m.

In case of inclement weather, the festival will be held at the Sungod Recreation Centre.
