Festival's various activities
On Saturday night, Mirboo North's first ever lantern parade will see the main street closed and transformed into a trail of light from beautiful handmade lanterns made by locals and visitors alike.
Local businesses are offering up special winter-themed drinks, meals, treats and live music to welcome you in from the elements. Meanwhile, over in Baromi Park an eclectic pop-up tipi will act as a hub for the festivities, including live music, fire twirlers, live ice sculpting, food vans and a bar.
