Make colorful lanterns ready to glow at the annual Jamaica Pond Lantern Parade. Spontaneous Celebrations will send a crew to provide expertise and materials – colored tissue paper and clear bottles that hold a candle inside.

The parade will take place October 21 & 22 starting at sundown at Jamaica Pond's boathouse.

Oct 9: This is a perfect event for friends and for families with children, good for all ages.
Oct 15: This is for adults only to gather after the kids are in bed. Bring refreshments to share.

This event is free and open to all. Spontaneous Celebrations requests a $5 donation per lantern.

Spontaneous Celebrations holds a number of lantern-making workshops in Jamaica Plain before the parade. Find a full list here.
