The Sixth Annual Tofino Lantern Festival in August 2006

sponsored by the Raincoast Education Society

the letter 'M'Make sure you don't miss this magical night! On Sunday Aug. 27th, 2006 the Raincoast Education Society is sponsoring the Sixth Annual Lantern Festival at the Tofino Botanical Gardens.

During the week leading up to the festival, residents and visitors can come to the Interpretive Centre to build their own candle lanterns to carry along the garden trails (see below for extra workshops at Word's End Booksellers and the Clayoquot Field Station). While many lanterns are carried by those who attend the event, many more are part of the numerous and imaginative creations scattered throughout the gardens. Imagine the trails alive with the glow of colourful handmade lanterns, music and other surprises…

Plans for this year's festival are well underway, so now is the time to get involved; make a lantern, sign up as a volunteer, get yourself a stylin' locally designed Lantern Festival t-shirt, or simply come enjoy a stroll through the magically lit gardens on Sunday, August 27th. Costumes are encouraged.

If you would like to become a sponsor for this great community event please contact the Raincoast Education Society at 725-2560.
