Event Type

Join NCLT for a family friendly WINTER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION on December 21, 2022, 5:30-7:00pm at the Doyle Community Center in Leominster.

Together we will celebrate, on this longest night of the year, the return of the sun as the days become longer and lighter again.  The event will include a short hike on the lantern lined trails, the lighting of your own handmade solstice lanterns, and reflecting on our goals for the year ahead.

We ask that attendees bring their own lanterns to light. These can be paper bag, mason jar, or cut paper lanterns, and candles to light them. Any lantern design is fine with us, the goal is to celebrate the light! We will also have a few materials on hand to make some for those unable to make a lantern ahead of time. Some tutorials are below or use your creativity to make whatever lantern you like.  We recommend bringing battery operated tea lights but regular tea lights are fine, too, at your own comfort.

Please park in the designated Doyle Center parking area and gather at the patio area near the facilities. Registration is required.
