A delicate art
In case you ever wondered how Aldeburgh is so well-equipped for the Chinese Lantern Procession on Carnival Monday, it’s down to the “drilling and screwing” party where the Carnival Committee and helpers get hands on with the canes and lanterns! We encourage you to enter into the Chinese Lanetern Procession (see picture) – a beautiful, candle-lit colour spectacular.
You’ll find Chinese Lanterns and canes for sale at various outlets locally. Please note these are NOT sky lanterns that are let off into the atmosphere, but are hung from a cane and carried by the person themselves. Aldeburgh Carnival would appreciate co-operation in not setting off sky lanterns, which are incredibly bad for the environment.
