Dear Friends –
Were you there? Were you part of the moment? The moment that today feels like a movement?
The hour where our Island unleashed intense creativity led by a rising moon, the echo of waves, and the pull of the tides?
It was a spectacular canvas.
A celebration of our Island community, the Lantern Parade on Saturday night hosted thousands of participants and spectators, shining the spotlight on our unique creativity with the beach as a backdrop. Congratulations to my friend, Jenn McEwen @ CultureHHI and her entire team for incubating this signature event that was much needed on our Island!
In case you missed it, I’ve pulled some of the best photos and videos from Facebook for you to enjoy!
