Mel talks about her brand love for one of Lismore’s biggest events, the Lismore Lantern Parade (on this Saturday night).
LOGO: Reminds me of the lanterns immediately. The orange and yellow tones are exactly the tones that the lanterns create on that magical evening! Logo created by Dogwhistle Creative.
How we met: I have to admit something… last year was my first Lantern Parade! How sad! I was always away or doing something when it was on. But I can tell you this: When I did go I was just as excited as the children I was watching it with!
Why we are still together: I think this is THE event of Lismore. We’re already cool, and everyone who lives in Lismore knows that, but some others might not. The Lantern Parade should also be known as: the outsiders introduction to Lismore’s coolness.
Last year, I turned up later than the billions of people and I parked in a spot that I thought was a spot.. turns out it was gate. The police called and I had to run from the park to my car and move it! Tragedy! But that was after I got to see all of the pretty lanterns.
Why do I love them overall?
The spirit that is on the streets during the Lantern Parade is unlike anything else I have ever seen. There’s a great, happy vibe, there’s lots of people around (over 20,000 people), it kind of feels like Christmas.
See you all this Saturday night!
