After a break in 2021, we were delighted to return with the North Belfast Lantern Festival based around the theme of Alice in Wonderland.  Over 30 groups took part in the outreach programme making fabulous lanterns and amazing installations. Over 5000 people from across the community attended the 2-day extravaganza which included family fun days and the main parade and event.  Participants came in costumes and with colourful lanterns in the longest-running Halloween Community Event in Belfast.
