Celebrate all things culture this Friday at LUMINOUS Lantern Parade!
An annual spectacle that is set to transform South Bank’s iconic riverside into a vibrant procession of lanterns at dusk, join us from 6pm for a cultural experience like no other. We’re talking a dazzling parade of magnificent lanterns, from larger-than-life flora and wildlife to awe-inspiring celestial bodies, followed by a free world music concert and inspiring displays of Queensland’s rich diversity…
Hosted by Multicultural Australia, this buzzing winter event has easily earned a place in our heart! A moving show of solidarity and support for refugees, migrants and people seeking asylum, this year’s parade will weave its way from Little Stanley Street to the South Bank Piazza, where each lantern will illuminate the World Music stage. Coming alive from 7pm with performances from a diverse mix of musicians and dancers, their epic concert is free for all ages!
Because no great family outing is complete without food (duh!), we recommend booking an easy dinner at one of South Bank’s many popular restaurants. Whether you’re in the mood for a Mexican fiesta at El Camino Cantina, a burger fueled feast at Brooklyn Depot or Modern Asian eats at Ma Pa Me, you’re guaranteed to find something that tickles your fancy.
All that’s left to do? Gather your friends and family for an evening rich in culture and cuisine!
