Vancouver - After a few years of being held at different places around Vancouver, Lantern Festival came back to its original location at Trout Lake with the lights display on Saturday night.
Every year The Lantern Festival, which is also called Illuminares, grows in good volume of both participants and viewers who come at one specific weekend night after 6 PM when the day light disappears over the west horizon and night time slowly takes over. This time, the festival came back to Trout Lake in East Vancouver after being showed both at Gastown and Canada Place in previous years.

The festival is the event in which people get various forms of light and carry them around Trout Lake to create a light-and-shadow progressing show that culminates with the final parade of lights. In this year's festival, the organizers called for artists to present their ideas in variety of installations displaying different forms of light.

Around the lake, there were workshops held to instruct the public on how to make their own lanterns made out of recycled material. They were sold to everyone who wanted to take part in the final light parade with their own lantern.
