Shine a Light for Culture Night

Mountshannon Aistear Park

The success and popularity of the inaugural Lantern Festival in Mountshannon in 2021 has inspired Mountshannon Arts to make it an annual event for Culture Night commencing at 8pm with a Lantern Parade from the Market House for the whole community.

Local artist Nathalie El Baba will be showing the children of Lakyle and Iniscealtra schools how to create lanterns from willow and tissue paper in advance of the day and the children will join with their families with their lanterns on the walk down to the harbour, and then up into our wonderful Aistear Park, where there will be some special entertainment, and light refreshments. Local artist Mark Wilson will launch the Viking Longboat and will be joined by stilt walkers and much more entertainment.

Mountshannon is blessed with its beautiful lakeside location, and we will make the lake and our wonderful Aistear Park a central part of the lantern lit walk. This promises to be an exciting family friendly event, and we welcome people of all ages and abilities and backgrounds to join us.
Come along, and bring your own lanterns.

In advance of the Lantern Festival, Mountshannon Arts in association with Mountshannon Community Council will launch of The Mountshannon Illustrated Map 6pm in Anita’s when Melanie White, chairperson of Mountshannon Arts committee will unveil this brand new digital map which features Mountshannon’s many artistic and architectural landmarks.
