Bring light to our community  with a lantern walk through the downtown with stops at local businesses, all offering up free outdoor entertainment and food/beverages for purchase. Details for the 2023 Lighten Up event coming soon!

How to make a lantern:

Here are some tutorials for different kinds of lanterns if you are eager to try something out. General suggestions are that bright LED tealights or battery-powered lightbulbs  or fairy lights are good for the light, and big coffee filters are great for the tissue paper. Masking tape, white glue, and glue guns are all you need for sticking things together. Please do not use fire-powered lanterns for this event.
