Wrotham Lantern Parade

Another Same Sky event with hundreds of local school children parading through the town with their Lanterns representing local fruit and produce.
In full lighting gear, we bought up the tail of the parade, setting off 2 car alarms along the way, so we must have been making a fair amount of noise!

It was great seeing the children's faces all lit up as we walked past them into the field for a quick play before the Morris Dancers and Bhangra 4x4 took their turns too.













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.
