Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade
Everyone is invited to participate from the comforts of your own home!
One of Atlanta’s most beloved, illuminated annual traditions is reimagined this September! For the first time, the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade will take place throughout a multitude of Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods. Everyone is invited to participate by parading-in-place at your own home and enjoy the spirit of the lantern parade online (or from the front of your home, if you’re lucky)! Created and hosted by Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons, the lantern parade will expand from a one-night in-person procession to a week-long virtual celebration. Everyone is invited to bring your homemade lanterns out to your porch, balcony, yard, and windows to shine your lights!
The Lantern Parade-in-Place will take place September 21 through 26, 2020. While we will not get together in person this year, and discourage lantern parade parties or gatherings, your participation from your home will provide a unique way to spread joy across the city, celebrate creativity, and build community on a granular level while keeping Atlanta safe.
