Tinkergarten Lantern Walk @ Lincoln Park
Nov 3 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Tinkergarten‘s Lantern Walk is designed to help kids big and small welcome and see the beauty in the darkness at the end of Daylight Saving time (aka “Fall back”). For our family and yours, we hope it becomes a magical, annual tradition. At the very least, it’s a chance to be out in the wild at night!

On the evening of the event, families will gather before dusk, sing songs, light lanterns, and enjoy an outdoor walk in the park. Simple and lovely. This event is free and open to all who register.
