Roswell Night of Lights: A Celebration of the Earth

Join Keep Roswell Beautiful at Riverside Park on April 27, 2019 for our first Earth Month celebration! We hope this free event will be educational, inspiring, and inclusive as we celebrate the natural world.

6:00-7:00pm Family friendly educational activities from Chattahoochee Nature Center, Atlanta Audubon Society, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, The Amphibian Foundation, Medicine Bow, Solarize Roswell, and National Park Service. Learn what concrete steps you can take to protect our species and our earth.

7:00-7:30pm Speakers from several faith communities in Roswell will lead us in giving thanks to the land, air, and water that sustain us.

7:30-8:30pm Walk with us in our twilight lantern parade! Everyone is welcome to participate; we just ask that you bring something that glows, twinkles, or shines! (Please, no fire or flames!). The parade route runs from Riverside Park to Don White Park and back (about a mile roundtrip).

We encourage you to create your lantern out of natural or reused/recycled materials. Or, join us at one of our Spring lantern building workshops [link to lantern workshop page] and bring your creation with you to the parade!

Lantern Building Workshops

Bring your own plastic bottle or jug (Clear, 2 liter or similar sized bottles work best, such as juice bottles or gallon milk jugs) as a base for your creation and we’ll provide the rest, including cutting tools, paint, brushes, glue, embellishments, a mini LED light, dowel for hanging, and general instructions and tips! Let your creativity flow to create a one-of-a-kind lantern for the parade!

Cost: $10 per lantern

Time: 10:00am-12:00pm
