Winter Solstice Lanterns

December 16, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Family-friendly craft and sunset viewing.

The longest night of the year, known as the Winter Solstice, will soon be upon us! Make a lantern from things found in nature to bring light to the years shortest day (happening on Thursday 12/21) all while learning about how the longest night is celebrated around the world. While we wait for our creations to dry, we will step outside and enjoy one of the last sunsets of Autumn. This is a family friendly event.
