The 5th Annual Sandy Springs Lantern Parade is back, but reimagined! This year’s Lantern Parade is a "parade-in-place" lighting up the city over the weekend of June 19-21 (Friday - Sunday) after sunset. Participants are encouraged to decorate their porches, balconies, yards, and windows with twinkle lights and decorations in all colors and forms in support of frontline workers and first responders. Blue globe lanterns, illuminated parasols with blue trimmings, and "keep-safe" angel lantern kits will be available for purchase beginning June 5th at ACE Hardware located at Cornerstone Square in Sandy Springs (6348 Roswell Road, 30328). You can also click here for instructions on how to make a lantern kit from materials you have at home (for additional inspiration, see below).
Parade-in-place participants are also encouraged to post to social media with the hashtag: #paradeinplacesandysprings. Check this page often for additional information about the parade festivities!
