Year of the Rabbit
- Tim Blair
We love to take a family trip each August to the Towersey Festival: music, dancing, food, and much fun and laughter. One of the things that takes place each year is a lantern parade on the last evening of the festival, and all the lanterns are made by the festival attendees over the course of the event, using wicker, masking tape, crepe paper, PVA glue, and a few LED lights.
Every year we say "we'll do something simple," and every year we don't. This year we created a 99 ice cream, including the geometric cone, a proper swirled ice cream, and a suitably-textured flake. It took a loooong time, but we had some wonderful compliments about it!
Next year we really are planning on doing something simpler to make more time for ceilidhing. We'll see...
