The Victoria Park Lantern Festival
Arguably the city's best-kept summertime secret with a diverse array of afternoon activities and performances. Join in by making your own lantern during the day to carry in the procession after dark. The lantern installation and fire show that cap the night will take your breath away. A truly multicultural event. Our lanterns take the forms of puffins, houses, stars, dragons and their ilk - designs limited only by the imagination - and a hidden river magically reveals itself in lights.

The offshore lines appearing in the map above which purport to delimit the offshore area of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador have no legal effect. Apart from the boundaries established pursuant to the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, which include the line established pursuant to the 2002 award of the arbitration tribunal concerning the delimitation of portions of the offshore areas between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia, there are no agreed boundaries between the offshore areas of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada, the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island or Quebec or the Nunavut Territory, and no such boundaries have been established under statute, regulation or agreement. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador has made these facts known to Google.
A simple lantern-making workshop takes place in the Park during the afternoon and there are activities and entertainment provided by a wide array of community organizations and local performers. On-site services include public washrooms, first aid, lost and found, food concessions, with a limited range of other merchandise. Off-site parking is available in lots belonging to businesses in the immediate neighbourhood.
