Festival of Lanterns: A Night of Light & Reflection
Be part of our virtual floating lantern event at Alga Norte Aquatic Center to bring the community together in honor of National Gratitude Month in November.
Purchase a lantern to take home, decorate and write a message of hope, reflection, gratitude or a wish. This is a great opportunity to thank first responders, teachers or community members who have done so much over the past several months. Once you have decorated your lantern, return it back to Aquatic Center no later than Oct. 30.
Lanterns are $5 and are on sale online until Oct. 28 and can be picked at the Aquatic Center.
Once returned, we will then add battery-lit candles and float all the newly decorated lanterns with hopeful messages in the pool to be part of a video event which will also include live singers, musicians and poetry readings.
Watch the video with the rest of the community which will be streamed on the city’s Facebook page on Nov. 14. Find out more
