You can't fully be a part of the lantern parade without a lantern!

Enjoy a globe lantern-making workshop at Colony Square to get ready for the big night! 

This lantern workshop is hosted by Chantelle Rytter and Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons for the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade on September 9, 2017! The lantern parade kicks off the season of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine. The lantern parade is a creative community collaboration. Thank you for making a lantern to walk in the parade! Your participation is what makes the magic. Please read parade details at

This is the easiest one! We are tricking out paper globe lanterns with colored paper, glue, and a light. You can easily finish your globe lantern in an hour or you can luxuriate with fabulous details! Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. It is best for kids who have mastered scissors, approximately 7 and up. All materials, light, and batteries included. Tickets are per lantern. (ie. Me and my boo want to make one globe lantern together. We just need one ticket.) Tickets help fund the parade and are non-refundable. You are welcome to BYO drinks and snacks. Please do your best to be on time.

Colony Square is a short walk from the Midtown Arts Marta Station and there is parking on site.

Take a look at the Lantern Workshop Gallery and get some ideas!
