Arts A-Glow,” Burien’s Amazing Lantern Festival & Procession, is coming to Town Square Park on Saturday night, Sept. 18th from 5pm – 10pm.

This is a great, annual arts fest where homemade lanterns light up the night sky as they are walked around in a procession to music through downtown Burien.

NOTE: There is a FREE “Lantern Open House” going on tonight (Wed., Aug. 25th) from 6:15pm – 8:15pm at the Burien Library Multipurpose Room, which promises:

Join the artists who will be leading this year’s Arts-A-Glow for an evening of inspiration and illumination!

Learn how to make a lantern at home and find out about the lantern-making classes at Moshier Art Center.

The evening will include a slide show, discussion, and hands- on art making for those of you who just can’t wait!

According to an email:

Come explore on this magical evening! Make your own lantern and join the procession at dusk! We will have musicians and performers around every corner and tea and treats to be sampled too.

You can also sign up for one of the upcoming August Lantern Making Workshops at the Moshier Art Center. Lanterns can also be made earlier in the day at Kids Day at the Burien Fire Station. Or make a lantern at home!

This event is about you and the amazing lanterns you make and bring to the fest! So check out the flyer to learn about upcoming lantern making classes!  Or check out our website for lantern making directions!

We will need lots of volunteers too so if you would like to help let me know!  We need volunteers for the lantern making booths, tea servers, greeters, info booth and more!
