As the sun set & the skies cleared on Friday night, Degnen Bay was alight with flocks of geese lanterns scattered throughout the Bay. Part of the Elements Festivals celebration of nature in performance, this was truly a spectacular performance.
In the week prior, several Gabriola islanders & tourists took opportunity to learn to create the exquisite geese lanterns at the Commons. On Friday night as it turned to dusk the lanterns were lit and the geese were gracefully scattered by canoe throughout the waters of Degnen Bay. Complete silence fell over the crowd that hugged the Gabriola shoreline gathered to hear the soundtrack that echoed from all corners of the bay including instruments to generate a bird like soundscape.
The evening was magical, and the scenery amazing! A kudos to the many volunteers it took to put this event together!
