The Sunshine Lantern Festival is a popular traditional event celebrated in Vietnam and many other South-East Asian communities and here in Sunshine it brings our culturally diverse community together in a safe and fun environment while supporting our local businesses. It is the largest Lantern Festival in Victoria. This year the bustling Hampshire Road, between Devonshire Road and Hertford Road, will be closed to all traffic and will come alive with roving street performers, entertainment, children’s rides, jumping castles, pony rides, market stalls, street food, face-painting, lantern making and more. A large performance stage and seating area will burst with local multicultural live entertainment in front of Sunshine Plaza. Later in the day a vibrant and energetic Lion and Dragon dance complete with long string fireworks will take place along the Hampshire Road shopfronts leading a parade of children and their following families. The parade will end with an exciting display of fireworks. The Sunshine Lantern Parade is staged and presented by the Sunshine Business Association and supported by Brimbank City Council and Multicultural Victoria.
