Decatur Lantern Parade

May 12 — it’s a date to stay up late!

Decatur celebrates the start of summer with its annual Community Lantern Parade. Kids of all ages gather at the starting point, Color Wheel art studio, with their creative paper lanterns in every conceivable shape, size and configuration. The Black Sheep Ensemble, a local street band, leads the high-stepping march to the downtown square, trailed by a joyous spectacle of glowing lanterns, luminous oversize puppets, lighted hats, and delighted faces. This beloved event is sponsored by the Decatur Arts Alliance and the Decatur Education Foundation.
