Lantern Walking, kids and grown-up event


11/11 Meet at 545, leave for walk promptly at 6pm Laternelaufen or Lantern Walking is a traditional German activity held in the evening on the 11th of November. Children, usually preschool to kindergarden age (though all are welcome to join in) walk with lanterns, often handmade and bring light to the darkness. It sounds like fun so let's try it. This is a chance to enjoy the night with children, friends and neighbors. This is a part of the Beech St. Project which is all about getting to know our neighborhood and having creative fun.

Route: We will start at Fly Awake, gathering at 5:45 and leaving promptly at 6pm, we'll walk up to 13th and Beech, down Beech (past the two intersection paintings) to NE 9th where we will turn left and walk across our new neighborhood crosswalk and back along Fremont towards Fly Awake. 

There will be will be some hot spiced cider made fresh for the event!  This event is free, please be careful of the garden with your young children.

Bring your own lantern or make one at our event at the Albina Library.
