We’re very excited to be bringing back Friday night lantern parades for the fifth year! Teaming up with The Puppet Free Library, Parts & Crafts, and Spontaneous Celebrations to host light and lantern-making workshops with kids and adults! We’ll mix the nighttime sounds of HONK! with homemade lanterns, blinking bike lights, and the warm welcome of neighbors watching from their front porches around Hodgkins Park.

Come from 4:00 – 6:00pm to make your lantern, then gather at 6:30pm before the parades depart from the park at 7:00pm!
