Lantern Parade

Lantern Parade

This spectacular parade promises to light up the night with magical and mystical lighted lanterns as they march down Main Street. Front and center at this after-dark occasion are the fragile, lightweight, lanterns that will adorn the dark sky this Saturday night. They come in all shapes and sizes from large to small and include ordinary objects and shapes to enormous mystical and mythical creatures.

Awaken Gallery is proud to present this event in collaboration with the City of Mount Holly, the Mount Holly Community Development Foundation, and sponsorships from Stanton Enterprise and the Mount Holly Tourism Development Authority (TDA).
