Sept 17 | Lantern Walk from The Yards Park to the Anacostia Arts Center -- Free Event!

The Lantern Walk is inspired by the story of African American families who built their homes in the historic Barry Farm / Hillsdale neighborhoods by candlelight after returning home from a long day’s work. Create a lantern at one of the upcoming workshops and join us for an evening of performances celebrating the community!

Events will begin at The Yards Park with a lantern-making workshop from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm and live performances by local musicians and dancers. The walk will commence at 7:30 pm from The Yards Park where participants will walk west along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, across the local 11th Street Bridge and to the Anacostia Arts Center. The walk will culminate at the Anacostia Arts Center with a celebration that includes a reception, interactive activities for all ages and live performances by East of the River artists from 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm.

See you this Saturday! It's going to be fun!
