After meeting at Picton's Benson Park, we’ll be parading to the Crystal Palace, the biggest lantern of them all.

Here’s a handy map:



WHY:

Because FUN. Because CREATIVITY. Because PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY!


OTHER THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:

How much does this cost?
The parade is free; entrance to the Crystal Palace is $5 for adults, $3 for children, or Pay-What-You-Can. You can pre-pay your admission at Benson Park and skip the line-up at the Crystal Palace. Just look for one of our volunteers.

No lantern? No problem!
We'll have lots of lovely lanterns for sale for $10 each.

How do I light up my lantern?
Our volunteers at Benson Park will be handing out LED tealights and sticks to carry your lantern in the parade. No live flame, please!

What should I wear?
Dress warmly, and if you want, wear a costume! Whatever makes you feel good.
