Albany Lantern Parade 2018

Albany Lantern Parade 2018 logo

The Albany Lantern Parade is returning for its third year in Washington Park on November 4. Event blurbage:

This free, family friendly event showcases community creativity, bringing neighbors together from across the Capital Region to celebrate the arts. At dusk, participants will gather at the Lake House to begin a stunning lantern lit parade around the lake. ...
"We're walking with lanterns to share some light as the days become shorter," said Sarah Read, the event's organizer. "This is about our Albany community coming together for a simple, free event to celebrate art, community and warmth on an evening few people look forward to - the night we have to turn back the clocks. If you come to a workshop, you'll meet new people, and the night of the walk you'll recognize these new friends - that's the community-building we're going for."

As mentioned above, there's a series of workshops at which you can make your own lantern. The list is below.

The Albany Lantern Parade is Sunday, November 4 from 4:45-6:30 pm. (Sunset is at 4:43 pm that day.)

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
