Victoria Park Lantern Festival

Lantern Builders Union

AKA: Special Projects & Large Lanterns

For the Serious Lantern Enthusiast

Every year we seek out artists and lantern enthusiasts to create new large installation lanterns for the festival’s hillside and lanterns for special fund raising projects. Lanterns are fragile creatures and each year we also need novice and experienced volunteers to repair the creations from the past. To complete this important work we have often scheduled special workshops. Special workshops became so successful that in 2012 we founded the Lantern Builders Union (LBU) Local 709.
