About the event
The Winter Solstice Lantern Walk is an annual tradition in Florence, going strong since 2018.
We gather at 1st and Harbor, near Bridgeport Market, starting at 4:45pm. The market usually stays open until 5pm in case you need anything. Other shops in Old Town may also stay open later on the 21st.
Bring your lantern (Enclosed flame only please), LED toys, flashlights, or anything that strikes your fancy. All ages, everyone welcome. Costumes and merriment encouraged!
There will be a brief orientation, then we will embark on a guided wander down the boardwalk, making our way towards the Christmas Tree, with some surprises along the way. Stay for a photo opportunity and social time if you like.
The Lantern Walk takes place no matter what the weather, so be ready and dress accordingly! Masks are appreciated for those who don't want to give, or catch, a cold/flu/etc.
