Salmon alight in the forest

The salmon have entered the forest! Last night and this evening from 6 – 9 pm, the salmon lanterns are swimming upstream in the woods alongside the Alouette River in Cross’ Cabins Park. The installation is part of Culture Days and is a celebration of Rivers Day, both happening this weekend.

Here are a few photos of the lanterns. This afternoon (Sat Sept 26) between 1 – 4 pm, drop by the studio to make your own lantern to carry through the installation this evening. We’ll be making the lanterns out of glass jars and tissue paper. You need about 15 or 20 minutes to make yours. All ages welcome. The studio is at 23740 Fern Crescent in Maple Ridge.

On Sunday, you’re invited to bring your lantern (not required) down to the Haney Warf from 6 – 8 pm for an evening of storytelling, songs and the WaterBody performance, all celebrating water.
