Organizers of Burien’s upcoming Arts-A-Glow Lantern Festival & Procession want our Readers to know that they could use more cowbell for this Saturday’s (Sept. 10th) annual Lantern Festival.

“Don’t forget to bring bells or windchimes to the GLOW to make beautiful sounds in the procession!” said Gina Kallman.

Of course Gina’s probably referring to nice-sounding bells or chimes, but we’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell:

We’re proud to be a Sponsor of the Arts-A-Glow Festival, this year being held in Dottie Harper Park from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. this Saturday Sept. 10th – for more information, visit

Here’s more about Arts-A-Glow from the city’s website:

A magical evening in the forest! We will have lantern art and performers around every corner, face painting, tea leaf reading, and tea and treats to be sampled. Make your own lantern and join the procession at dusk (8ish)!

And a special surprise performance after the procession…don’t miss it!

Community Procession at Dusk! Bring bells to play as you walk to make beautiful music! Procession map

Lantern Making
You can sign up for one of the upcoming 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! Lantern can be made from plastic water bottles, paper bags, tin cans…you can recycle and be creative! Light your lantern with glow sticks or battery operated candles!
