We received this note from our neighbors at the Emerson School inviting us to their annual Lantern Walk through the North Park Blocks – Nov 24th / 6PM. See you there!
I’m writing to let you know that one of our annual traditions at Emerson is coming up, and this year we want to invite our neighbors to join us – should anyone want to. We have an annual Lantern Walk once the darkness really settles in. Children make lanterns (this year they are various empty glass jars, decorated and given handles) and after we put candles (electric tea lights…) in them we parade through a few of the Park Blocks and gather in the Davis-Everett block to sing songs (we’ll have little word sheets for those who want them) and celebrate gathering in the darkness to appreciate the season.
Tuesday, Nov. 24, 6pm-7pm, rain or moonshine. Meet outside the school on NW Park Ave between Couch and Davis at 6pm if you want to walk a few Park Blocks with them, or join them in the Davis-Everett Park Block for singing around 6:30pm.
Bring a light source if you can (lantern, glow stick, flashlight, but please no unprotected flames)!
