Winter Solstice Lantern Parade

December 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

SOLSTICE LANTERN PARADE!
Monday, December 21st, 2015, 5 pm
***KID FRIENDLY!***

Minor Mishap Marching Band invites you to join us under the dark Solstice sky in a PARADE OF LIGHT! Let’s gather on the shortest day of the year to celebrate light, darkness, music, community, nature and other things of general awesomeness. Also, let’s party down and shake our booties! It’s (finally) getting (slightly) cold around here: time to shake that thang and warm up.

PLEASE MAKE LANTERNS! You are the main source of beauty and creativity for this event. We’re hoping a whole bunch of folks will make lanterns (be creative, there are a million ways to approach this) and carry their own light with them in the parade. Won’t that be beautiful? Due to the drought, there is a burn ban in effect, so let’s make beautiful diffusers for flashlights! It’s safer, easy, and kid friendly. (Yes, of course you can come without a lantern, if you ran out of time to make one).

Activities: booty shaking, parade of light
Cost: free

Please make a lantern to carry in the parade! and make some lanterns with your kiddos! The beauty of this event is created by YOU! Here are a few links to give you ideas and get you started!
