Night of 2003 Lights Lantern Festival

Streamkeepers set up a display at this free, fun-filled family event above the north shore of Deer Lake next to the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby, BC, on Sept. 20, 2003. Hundreds of people turned out, and made their own lanterns at this wonderful gathering reflecting primeval aspects of numerous cultures. Come make a lantern next year, join the fiery parade, and watch the astounding entertainment.
