The Victoria Dragon Boat Festival Society is sponsoring the seventh annual Lights of Courage campaign in support of the B.C. Cancer Foundation.

Chinese paper lanterns are being sold for $2 each at all Fairway Market stores, Denny’s Restaurant and the Bay Centre. They feature a tag to write a message to those affected by cancer.

The lanterns will be hung at the Bay Centre and the festival grounds in the Inner Harbour during the Dragon Boat Festival, Aug. 17-19.
