Glow in the Park Lantern Walk September 17 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Glen Ellyn Park District is partnering with Charlie’s Corner Foundation with proceeds benefiting Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for an exciting evening of family activities.

Watch as the sun sets on Lake Ellyn and we make the jewel of Glen Ellyn glow! Enjoy bounce houses, an inflatable climbing wall, food available for purchase from The Stand, live music from Dave Rudolf (6pm-7pm), and more, until the sun goes down. At approximately 7:30pm, join or watch the lantern parade around Lake Ellyn! Participants will have an opportunity to create a paper lantern for the walk at the event ($10 fee; supplies provided) or bring your own creative creation! Don’t know how to make one? Register for one of our paper lantern workshops!


WHO GETS TO BE IN THE LANTERN WALK? YOU DO!
What is a paper lantern?
It is a simple, decorated lantern orb-on-a-stick lighted with battery-operated LEDs (no flames). The lanterns will be carried by participants around the lake. Prizes awarded for most creative lanterns! Lanterns and lights are available for purchase in a variety of colors at the Spring Avenue Recreation Center for $10.
