Lantern Fest 2019

Lantern Fest is a performance art piece created by the participants—YOU! People make lanterns that they light and carry as they walk around the park ponds, letting the colorful lanterns’ light reflect in the waters.
And we will help you make your lantern!
Lantern Workshop: Saturday, October 12
10:00 am  /  11:00 am  /  12:30 pm

Workshops will be at the Cortez Public Library conference room (Park & Montezuma). All materials provided. Space is limited to 15 people per session. See below to reserve space at a workshop.

Lantern Fest: Monday, October 14

6:30 pm


Gather at the Community Garden at the Recreation Center (SW corner of the Rec Center, Roger Smith Ave.). Line up and light your lantern for the perambulation (walk) around the Parque de Vida and Centennial Park ponds. The walk ends back at the garden.
