The City of Maple Ridge is inviting the public to create lanterns in preparation for one of the community’s most celebrated events.

At each workshop, participants will have the opportunity to create two lanterns: one that will be used at Celebrate the Night, and another to take home if they so choose.

The two workshops will take place on Saturday, October 15: one from 10-12 p.m.; and the other from 1-3 p.m..

Workshops are recommended for participant 5-years and up.
