Bring a flashlight or a wide-mouth mason jar to transform them into lanterns. Make your own lantern, or help us as we make large lanterns to decorate Hett Avenue during the Lantern Walk on December 21. Don’t know if you can come to the Lantern Walk? That’s okay. Make a lantern at the workshop and use it to light up your own street.

Space is limited, so contact us to reserve a spot, or just show up. Bring your friends!

For kids and adults of any ability. Kids should be accompanied by an adult.

* The WALES building is the heated portable in the back of the Extend-A-Family parking lot. It’s accessible by wheelchair and stroller.

  1. I would like to come but work until about 6:30pm Would there be enough time to make a lantern? How long does it take? Where on Moore (intersection nearby) is it on? Thanks!
