Floating Lantern Matsuri – Shinju Matsuri

Festivals and Celebrations

28 Aug 2021 Annual Event

Send your message out to the universe in one of the most symbolic ways possible at The Floating Lantern Matsuri. Whatever your message is, watch it float in glowing unison with all the other messages into the sunset.

The Floating Lantern Matsuri embraces everything about life, love, peace and friendship, providing you with a chance to get your thoughts down in writing and gently send them off onto destinations unknown. Whether your message is personal in memory of a lost loved one, a wish, a prayer or general words of encouragement and happiness for the world – put it on a lantern and watch it commence it’s peaceful, glowing journey on the evening tide.

The event is free to attend. Lantern Kits are available to purchase online by 21 August or at the Information Booth during Shinju Matsuri. There are limited number of lanterns for sale on the beach so it is advised to pre purchase to ensure you don’t miss out.

This event is part of the Shinju Matsuri Festival which is an annual event.

The Shinju Matsuri Festival runs from 22 August to 5 September. See website for more information https://www.shinjumatsuri.com.au/
