Light up the streets with make-your-own lanterns
Fascinated by the bright lights and unique patterns of lanterns? This spring, you can learn how to make one yourself, and your creation can be on display in a lantern parade.
Until June 17, TOHU in collaboration with the Fonds de solidarité FTQ, will be presenting the first ever Les Lumières de St. Michel. During this event, residents of St. Michel can come together to build various lanterns, which will be showcased in a parade through the neighbourhood on June 17.
TOHU hosts circus shows and other unique performances. Its mission is to offer a wide range of educational activities related to the environment.
The creation of the lanterns will take place during several workshops over eight weeks. You can make any size lantern you want, and each workshop will have a theme such as insect or stencil- and flower-themed lanterns. The free workshops can be reserved online and take place at St. Michel Arena, located at 3440 Jarry St. E.
The parade will go through Frédéric-Back Park in St. Michel and will end at TOHU’s public square.
