Lanterns on the Lagoon & Sculptures in the Park

Lanterns on the Lagoon 

Lanterns on the Lagoon is a festival celebrating reflection, sustainable art and sculpture. Set in a beautifully serene park nestled next to the banks of the Tumut River, this free event hosts a range of family friendly activities from midday into the evening. Visitors are welcomed with music, fine food and entertainment as they meander throughout the park to marvel at sculptures crafted from recycled, reclaimed and sustainable materials. At dusk, hand-decorated lanterns are gently released onto the lagoon as the park and sculptures are transformed by elegant lighting. Coinciding with the Spring Equinox each year, this festival provides a platform for the community to enjoy a cultural experience in a relaxed environment.
