On Sunday, November 1st, families across the country will turn the clocks back. How can we help our kids,
and ourselves, embrace this change and bring hope forward into 2021? With a virtual Lantern Walk!
This lovely, annual tradition hosted by Tinkergarten is easy to do and a beautiful tradition to start with your kids.
On and around November 1st, families all across the country will go on Lantern Walks to welcome the end of
daylight saving time and lean into this big, natural change with joy.
Hundreds of thousands of people, big and small, will light lanterns and head outside to walk, sing and
enjoy the beauty of little lights against the new fall darkness. This chance to feel connected to one another
and the natural world can help us all balance out a year full of change and provide us a lasting dose of
hope to carry into the upcoming winter and 2021!
HER Circle members are invited to join us at the Big Field of Dix Park with your partner, family, and friends for a socially distanced lantern walk. Please come with your lanterns ready to go. (If you are unable to craft your lanterns in advance, a flashlight or battery-operated lantern will work too).
Find directions on how to make your lanterns here:
We will plan to meet around 5:30pm with a short “walk” beginning around 5:45 (dusk).
Join us for a private tour of Carolina Tiger Rescue. This is a walking tour so it is suggested for children 3 and up (or carry your child in a backpack).
The tour is outside, social distancing measures will be followed, and masks are highly encouraged when 6 feet or more cannot be maintained.
The private tour is capped at 12 participants, so please keep your RSVP current.
