A BRAND new event takes place this coming weekend when Beach Buddies and Breast Cancer Now join forces to host “Lanterns On The Lake” at Onchan Park on Saturday (October 10th).
The family event, sponsored by Manx Telecom, is free to attend and will involve a display of sponsored floating Chinese style lanterns on the Onchan Park boating lake, plus colourful lighting around the lake and live music.
“Lanterns on the Lake” starts at 7pm and visitors will have the chance to sponsor the lanterns, buy glow sticks and make donations to the two charities. Live music will be provided by the Roc Vannin Choir.
Both the Onchan Park Cafe and “The Views” restaurant will be open on the night.
• The weather forecast looks favourable, but the event will be postponed until Sunday, October 11th at the same time if the weather on Saturday is too windy or wet.
• All items used at this event will be recycled.
