Luminous Lantern Parade

The VoRTCS/Vinnies team participated in MDA’s LUMINOUS Lantern Parade at South Bank on Friday, 9 June 2017. Attended by over 15,000 people each year, the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade is Queensland’s largest event welcoming new Queenslanders, including refugees, international students, people seeking asylum and migrants.
The parade features colourful lanterns held by representatives from government, council, community groups and the broader Brisbane community in celebration of our State’s wonderful cultural diversity.
The VoRTCS/ Vinnies team were very proud to be a part of such a wonderful event and had a fantastic evening!
This year VoRTCS/ Vinnies carried the White Rabbit – which was a hit with the kids!
