Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart.

School participation in lantern making workshops and the festival’s parade provides the opportunity for genuine integration of the Australian Curriculum’s cross-curriculum priority of Asia & Australia’s Engagement with Asia.

In 2018, 20 countries were represented through 60 individual events.

Want to be a part of the Moon Lantern Parade in 2019? Our OzAsia teaching artists will visit selected participating schools to run lantern workshops in the term leading up to Moon Lantern Parade. Together with your school’s teachers and parent volunteers, artists will lead students in creating lanterns that they will then carry in the festival’s Moon Lantern Parade!
