Decorate a Lantern and walk in the Festival of the Dead Parade with us.

Celebrate Missoula’s Festival of the Dead by carrying a lantern that memorializes a loved one or honors a Missoula non-profit organization. Community members are invited to decorate a lantern at this family-friendly and FREE event. The Missoula Community Foundation will provide lanterns and the art supplies to decorate them. Feel free to bring photos and other mementos to attach to your lantern. Carrying a lantern in the parade provides Missoulians a medium to express their own feelings about life and death, and celebrate the beauty of leaving a legacy.

We will be holding 2 Lantern Making Workshops this year. So join us and walk with the Missoula Community Foundation in the Festival of the Dead Parade.

The events are hosted by the Zootown Arts Community Center, 235 N 1st Street West.

When: October 22nd, 2016 – 2:00-4:00pm

November 2nd, 2016 – 2:00-5:00pm (before the parade)

More information: To RSVP, contact Nikki Robb at 406-926-2846 or visit the Missoula Festival of the Dead Facebook page.
