About the Event

One of the things we are so grateful for are the people who participate in our lantern parades! Last year was incredibly challenging and yet you all made it happen and it was truly a bright spot for our community while the pandemic was still raging. I still cannot express enough gratitude for all of you who made your spectacular lanterns and also for the incredible people who attended, followed all of the rules to keep people safe, and did it with smiles and incredible enthusiasm. We get teary eyed just thinking about it!

We are back on the streets this year and are hoping YOU will join in and make a lantern!

Our theme is Let's All Go To The Movies! 

This is very wide open and we cannot wait to see what you all come up with for this!


If you have not made a lantern or come to one of our workshops, visit our website where you will find links to videos to get you started! 


Latern making materials including wet strength tissue can be purchased at the gallery at .30 cents a sheet (20 sheets will cover a large lantern). All other supplies can be purchased locally and are listed in the videos.

If you have any questions, contact us at

We know you want to participate so LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
