Gravesend Paralympic Lantern Parade

A perfect early September evening, 2 days before the official closing of the Paralympic games and several hundred children gathered in Gravesend to parade specially built lanterns though the park and onto the promenade. Supported by Same Sky, we played on the bandstand and followed the procession. and were joined by Steel Ambition and the 4x4 Bhangra group.

After all the children were presented with their medals, the parade ended at the Same Sky Dome for a dramatic interactive experience highlighting Man's impact on the Earth and how we should protect the environment.
