Please join us on Saturday, August 26, for the 6th Annual Lantern Walk around Fellsmere Pond to make (or buy) a lantern and come together as Malden and Medford neighbors of all ages to celebrate our diversity, enjoy beautiful Fellsmere Pond and just have fun! Candlelight walks allow us to join together as a community and share our common purpose, helping voice devotional feelings, celebrate our successes, build community, demand justice and remember loved ones. There’s something about lighting the dark with candles that’s uniquely and deeply human.
You can make your own lantern from 4:30 to 7:00 or buy a premade lantern (while supplies last). Parkour Generations Boston will add to the festivities. Carrying our lighted lanterns, we’ll begin our walk around the Pond at dusk. The location is the north end of Fellsmere Park near the intersection of Fellsway East and Savin Street. Rain date is the following day, Sunday August 27.
This event is brought to you by the Friends of Fellsmere Heights, the Mass Cultural Council and the Malden Cultural Council. For more information, please visit www.fellsmereheights.org.
