Union Elementary School invites the entire Montpelier community to join us for an evening lantern procession on Thursday, February 21, 2019. This year’s theme is “Shine Your Light, Share Your Story.”
The lantern procession will begin at 6:00 pm at Union Elementary School. Led by the Burlington samba band Sambatucada, we will parade from the school through downtown Montpelier carrying our handmade lanterns. When we arrive at the State House Lawn there will be a fun finale celebration with decorated luminaries, live music, a dance performance, and free hot chocolate and cider!
Montpelier residents and community members will also have the opportunity to create their own lanterns at one of our free one-day lantern making workshops. Donations will be welcome. All tools and materials will be provided. For more information and to book your place for the February 9th workshop at Union Elementary, please contact Kristina Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org. To register for the February 16th workshop at The Montpelier Senior Center, please call 802-225-8699.
