2018 Lantern Walk: Photos and Recap

About 50 people met at the Talbot Avenue Bridge at dusk on Saturday November 10, 2018 to participate in the inaugural Talbot Avenue Bridge Lantern Walk. This Little Light of Mine was the event’s theme.

The day began with a morning lantern making workshop which was held at the Gwendolyn Coffield Community Center. People from age two to 99 made lanterns using recycled plastic bottles, paper, leaves, and twigs.

Andrea Blackford of The Washington Revels’ Jubilee Voices led people in song and representatives from the Lyttonsville, North Woodside, and Rosemary Hills neighborhoods made brief statements before walkers embarked on a route over the bridge and through the North Woodside and Lyttonsville neighborhoods. At the end of the route, people gathered for hot cider and baked goods.
