Decatur Lantern Parade-in-Place

May 8, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - May 10, 2020 @ 11:00 pm

Where: Your House
When: Friday through Sunday May 8-10
Time: After Dark

Parade-in-place with your lantern creations on your porch, in your yard, on your balcony, in your windows. Encourage your whole block to light it up. Play some tunes from local parade bands, the Black Sheep Ensemble and Wasted Potential Brass Band! Walk, bike, or drive around the neighborhood over the weekend and enjoy the glow. 

On Saturday night after dark, watch for the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons’s giant lantern puppets wandering around town.

Who will win the prize for the best Lantern Parade-in-Place decorations? Post your photo on social media #paradeinplacedecatur by Saturday, May 9. The prize includes a visit to your yard by giant lantern puppet Rex Kitty.

Need a little help getting ready? Lantern kits are available at Kelly’s Market, 308 E. Howard Ave., Decatur, GA 30030 beginning April 27. New for 2020: a paper-cut angel lantern designed by Chantelle Rytter. Globe lanterns and illuminated parasol kits will also be available.
