Lismore Lantern Parade
Gilbert the Gorilla was born in June 2012 for Lismore Lantern Parade.
He is a local (stuffed toy) celebrity who resides at a local preschool in
between going to children’s houses for sleepovers. He has his own
journal detailing his adventures, both here and abroad and is loved by
many. He belonged to a young woman who worked at the child care
centre before she sadly lost her battle with cancer. Gilbert is one
of her friends who brought her comfort whilst in hospital.
Her legacy lives on through the adventures of Gilbert.
