The Illumination Lantern Parade and Concert celebrates the recognised home of the Humpback Whale, Hervey Bay.  The region comes alive to celebrate the annual migration of these majestic creatures with the Hervey Bay Whale Festival.

The Illumination Parade represents the annual migration of the humpback whales that return to Hervey Bay's pristine waters each year to rest and play. Hundreds of people line the streets while community groups, families and individuals carry lanterns that light up the street. They wind their way through to the Seafront Oval where the day will culminate with the Illumination Concert - featuring Ella Hooper of Killing Heidi, Brisbane band Faleepo FrancisCo and local artists Derek F Smith and Brandon Woods.
