The Lantern Parade is an annual event that celebrates Art on the Atlanta BeltLine with a glowing procession of homemade lanterns. The event, created and hosted by Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons, is now a favorite Atlanta tradition, and you can participate, too!
Sign up for a Lantern Workshop here and you can make a lantern with the Captain of the Krewe herself, Chantelle Rytter. Lanterns come in globe form, parasols, hats, and more, so pick the workshop that you like the best! And don’t forget to mark your calendar for September 22 so you don’t miss the big day.
All you need to know about the Lantern Parade can be found at art.beltline.org/lantern-parade. There is NO registration for the parade, but you must register for a workshop if you want to join one. The BeltLine Lantern Parade is presented by Cox Enterprises, Salesforce, and WellStar, with support from platinum sponsor Ponce City Market and gold sponsor Atlanta Journal Constitution.
