ABOUT THE PARADE


2016 Lantern Parade_30

Mark your calendars for the 4th annual Sandy Springs Lantern Parade on Saturday, June 15, 2019. The parade starts at Steel Canyon Golf Club and ends at Morgan Falls Overlook Park. Chantelle Rytter, the creator of the very successful Beltline, Grant Park, and Decatur Lantern Parades, produces our unique “Take It to the River” Parade. Last year, Chantelle introduced new dragonfly and great blue heron "puppet" lanterns to interact with the audience. They will be back again in 2019, along with the swans, Lilly and Billy, Alice the 25-foot albino alligator, Big Mama Sandy the turtle, and Jeremiah the bullfrog, accompanied by his lilies. New this year is Sanderson the Flying Pig. Participate in one of the flying pig workshops, and you can march with the Swoop of Pigs leading the parade to Overlook Park. Once the parade reaches the river, paddlers from High Country Outfitters will escort select lanterns to the river for a floating parade. Don't miss this riveting river light display!

LANTERN WORKSHOPS - You Make The Magic!
