Build your own lantern in the style of the Lunar New Year! The New York Winter Lantern Festival has come to Snug Harbor, and we want you to learn why lanterns play such an important role in Chinese celebrations. Working with basic materials, families will build a lantern from scratch to light up the holiday.
WHERE: Greenbelt Nature Center, 700 Rockland Avenue, Staten Island NY 10306
WHEN: November 27 | Choose from three workshops at 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM, and 12:00 PM
ADMISSION: Free! | Register here
Each workshop lasts 45 minutes. Participating families will receive one free ticket to the New York Winter Lantern Festival. Then explore the beauty of the Greenbelt in late autumn with a brisk walk along the nearby trails!
This program is made possible with funding provided by the New York City Council through the Cultural Immigrant Initiative, a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Snug Harbor thanks Council Members Steven Matteo for his generous allocations.
This event is also supported in part by the New York Winter Lantern Festival.
