The hills will be alive with light in Langford on Saturday, Sept. 21 when Light Up the Hills sets the night aglow in Westhills.
This is the fourth year for the lantern festival, which brings over 3,000 people to Westhills to walk among illuminated artworks, provoking a new way of looking at the night. Participants walk along a designated path, passing performances and artwork, and guiding their journey with their own handmade lanterns.
The event, happening from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., is held as a way to shine a light on local artists, musicians and performers while providing a unique new look at the area, which ends up bathed in a spectacular glowing effect.
The West Shore Arts Council, which organizes the event, is hosting lantern making workshops in the lead up to the event (watch westshorearts.org for details). They also need volunteers to guide visitors along the route and help participants make their lanterns, among other tasks. Anyone able to help is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
