One of the most anticipated events on the Brisbane calendar, the 12th annual LUMINOUS Lantern Parade celebrates Queensland Week by highlighting the strength of our cultural diversity, our heritage, our people, places and history, giving all Queenslanders the opportunity to say “Welcome!” to our newest Australians and celebrate our diversity.

This free event unites government, community leaders, multicultural communities and everyday Queenslanders, capturing our imaginations with its spectacular use of light as it illuminates the South Bank precinct to symbolise hope and create welcome.

LUMINOUS 2019 features an array of new lanterns. Some of the larger lanterns include a koala, owl, kangaroo and rainbow serpent, as well as iconic Brisbane landmarks including the Story Bridge and City Hall.

LUMINOUS parade walkers can either carry a small hand-held lantern, or join another community group with a large lantern.

More than 15,000 people are expected to be part of the spectacle of light and sound, set against the backdrop of the River City.

The event concludes with a vibrant free concert on the Cultural Forecourt.

Schedule: 

  • Food stalls and entertainment from 5pm
