For some extra fun at the annual favourite Candlelit Walk – kickoff to Goderich Winterfest 2017 – come make your own lantern to light the trail! Attend one or both Lantern Making workshops at the Parks Department Shed on Parsons Court, Saturday, January 21 and Sunday, January 22 (two weeks before the Walk) from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
To display your wonderful lanterns on the trail and participate in a short, fun lantern parade at 7pm, Friday, Feb. 3, bring your lanterns to the Knights of Columbus Centre where you will light, parade and then install them where you like along the trail. Remember to take them home with you after the walk. The Candlelit Walk runs 7:30-9 pm – in any weather – at the Maitland Woods, behind the Knights of Columbus Centre on Parsons Court.
Please register early to ensure a space (and to prevent cancellation of the workshops) by calling instructor Karen Melady at 519.524.7518. Leave a message with your name, number of participants (adults/children), contact number, and which day(s) you prefer. Pay the $10 materials fee to Karen at the workshop. All are welcome, but children need to bring a hands-on, adult helper.
Lantern or not, come and be a part of this magical winter evening in the Maitland Woods, sponsored by the Maitland Trail Association.
