Esquimalt festival needs lantern art

Artists asked to create works of art

Esquimalt has put out a call for artists to create works of art, especially lantern art, for its annual lantern festival.

The pieces are to capture the magic of the event that begins at 6 p.m. on Sept. 24 with a lantern walk along Westbay Walkway to Barnard Park. The event continues in Captain Jacobson Park, where there will be music and dancing until 10 p.m.

Artists my register by July 31. For details, please esquimaltlanternfestival.wordpress.com.
