Light Up The Night Lantern Walk
Dec 12, 2021
Come shine your brightest during the darkest time of the year!
On Sunday, Dec. 12th, the City of Martensville is partnering with SaskOutdoors, Sask Lotteries and Wildernook Fresh Air Learning to offer you a magical evening lantern walk experience. Lantern building will take place indoors in the Northridge Community Centre. The Lantern Walk will wind through Kinsmen Park and will depart from and return to the Community Centre for your convenience.
Families will enjoy hands-on creative time together in the Northridge Community Centre to construct their own lanterns. Then we will take our lanterns outdoors on a guided interpretive walk in Kinsmen Park. This is a neat opportunity for kids to share their light in an outdoor lantern procession! Join families internationally, who bring light into the darkest days of the year by participating in lantern walks.
Children must attend with an adult. We will be mobile on foot during the lantern walk and participants should be able to comfortably walk on uneven ground. Make sure to bring warm clothing layers (e.g. long underwear, winter jackets or snowsuits, winter boots, toques and warm mitts) to be comfortable outdoors for 30 to 40 minutes during the lantern walk. You may wish to consider pulling toddlers in a sled.
Mark your calendars, and register now to send a clear signal to the event organizers you are interested in the Lantern Walk coming to Martensville. Registration is FREE and will close on Friday Dec. 10th. Make sure you pre-register for your timeslot: 5:00pm, 6:30pm, or 8:00pm. Adults and families with older children are encouraged to register for the 8pm session.
