7TH ANNUAL LANTERN WORKSHOPS, PARADE AND FESTIVAL
FREE Family-Friendly Event – All ages and abilities welcome!
Join us in one of our FREE handcrafted lantern-making workshops and take part in our Jamestown parade, and meet us back at the JAC Gallery for refreshments. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Lantern-builders must provide their own battery-operated light source (such as a flashlight or string lights), other materials provided. Donations of recyclable building materials such as translucent plastic bottles and containers, sticks to hang lanterns on and parade with, thin sticks to make frameworks, and wet-strength tissue paper are most welcome. Consider bringing old lampshades, broken umbrellas or anything else that can be transformed into a translucent structure!
This 7th Annual JAC Lantern Parade begins AND ends at the Jamestown Arts Center, followed by a spectacular Festival in the JAC Gallery! All are welcome to join the festivities and participate in the magic. All lanterns are welcome at the parade and festival, especially lanterns from previous parades. Please NO candles. Dress warmly!
