Light Up Newcastle Lantern Walk
Saturday 21st February - Monday 1st January10:00 - 10:00pm
The Light Up Newcastle Lantern Walk will celebrate the Chinese New Year 2015. This event involves the whole of the local community and demonstrates this year's theme of "Light up Rotary" with Rotary Clubs of District 9670. Join an evening walk with people carrying Chinese lanterns starting from two locations on the harbour and meeting at the Maritime Centre in Harbour Square at Honeysuckle. As people walk with lighted lanterns and the sun sets over Newcastle, this will form a snake along the water front of Newcastle Harbour as people make their way into the Honeysuckle Precinct. Sale of lanterns at the start points and sales stalls along the foreshore will be between 4pm-8pm to allow the volunteers time to walk to Honeysuckle for the fireworks at 9pm. This is a fundraising event to support the Newcastle Mission to Seafarers at Wickham.
