Children’s Literature in lanterns

One of the cool things I love about the Vancouver Folk Music Festival is the lantern parade they do towards the end of the night concerts.  The lanterns are carried through the crowd, and then light our way as we leave the park at the end of the last set. These lanterns are crafted from paper, sticks, glue and paint and have grown to be an art form in and of themselves.  This year the lantern theme was children’s literature.  Lanterns featured included The Stinky Cheese Man, the spider from Charlotte’s Web, The hat from The Cat in the Hat, Peter Rabbit, Little Red Riding Hood, and many more.  Here are a few pictures I managed to take.

I just wish you could have been there….it was magical.

    It was wonderful. I’m sure if you contacted the festival, they’d send you way better photos than I was able to get.

    This is so very awesome! Here in Japan we have a number of lantern opportunities in the summer. I need to do something like this next year!
