Bamboo Installations at the River Festival

November 1, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm



Come join our Volunteer BOO River CREW.


We are a major partner/sponsor of the event and will be doing the following activities.  Come learn, share and join in on the Bamboo creations prior or on the day:


– Water Feature park for Kids with a Pirate theme!  We will use the Bellingen Solar Depot’s solar pump system to pump water continuously from the river to a ‘Pirate’ tower where water channels go in all directions and children can use bamboo cups to move water around and play.  A first of its kind design by our team mate:  Rob Harling.  Rob has been involved in Festival and Event creations for many years, including the Global Carnival and Burning Man Seed, using bamboo of course!

– 3 entrances.  Bello Bamboo is creating the 3 main entrances of the Festival.  Come create something beautiful and unique.

– Poles for lighting and Big Bamboo Lanterns.  We have cut large Latiflorus species for 4 mtr poles on site.

– Bamboo Lantern making and decoration.  We will workshop creation of the bamboo lanterns (bamboo & paper) prior to the event, and then on the day, we will have a Bamboo Lantern Making marquee.  Come volunteer prior or for an hour on the day.



We like to increase learning about Bamboo in all our events, thus the opportunity to come learn, share and join us on the Bamboo journey!
