Getting ready for Light Up Bowen
Did you know that the Bowen Community Fair Association not only supports community non-profits through the Bowfest event in August, but also reinvests some of the funds into the community throughout the year?
To support the traditional community event Light Up Bowen, the Bowfest board (www.bowfest.org) helped to make the two-part, free lantern-making workshop on November 16 possible for Bowen Island community youth and their parents.
The lantern making workshop was held at BICS and was organized by the community school coordinator as part of community learning programming. BICS students who participated in the after-school lantern making workshop were really in the spirit of things, as November 16 was also Crazy Hair Day at the school.
Watch to see all of the fabulous lanterns on parade on Saturday, December 1, at the Light Up Bowen event that is sponsored by the Bowen Chamber of Commerce. And thank you, Bowfest board, for the support.
