About the 3rd Annual Crescent Moon Party & Lantern Parade

The Crescent Moon Party celebrates the light at the end of a dark winter. Warm-up with music, fire pits, hot chocolate and your neighbours. This will also feature a lantern parade. The Lanterns were made over the course of January 2020 by local organizations in the community (Inn from the Cold, Calgary Chinese Community Service Association 卡城華人社區服務中心 – CCCSA and Wild Rose United Church) and facilitated by local puppet artist Elaine Weryshko from the Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry. The party and parade will bring awareness to nighttime pedestrian safety in our neighbourhood.

Everyone is welcome to join the lantern parade. We recommend you dress up in bright costumes (not mandatory) and bring your own lights (also, not mandatory).

Location: Starting and ending at the famous Tigerstedt Block Parking Lot (9th Ave. & Centre St.)
Cost: Free

All ages, family-friendly, pet-friendly, everyone is welcome. Costumes are welcomed.
