1st Annual Lantern Walk
October 20, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The fall season is upon us with the Hadley-Lake Luzerne Historical Society’s 1st Annual Lantern Walk. All are welcome to participate as lanterns are made and then used to light the way through town embarking on characters sharing their story of Lake Luzerne’s hey-day of the mid-1860s to the early-1900s. One may encounter Edward “Ned” Garnar, his brother William, Benjamin Butler, Annie Kinnear, Henry Ketchum, Fredrich Roider, Warren Hall and if Elizabeth Winsor is in town, she may invite guests in for apple cider.
Bring a lantern for guided tours starting at 7:00 PM and 7:30 PM, or participants may create their own lantern at the Rockwell Falls Library at 6:30 PM. The lanterns represent the changing of the season from dark, longer days and is a metaphor to remind us to light our way to a brighter tomorrow.
A food wagon, “A Whole Lot of Taste”, will be available at the Kinnear Museum of Local History from 4:30-6:30 PM for a cup of warm soup or chili. The Gift and Book Shop inside the Kinnear Museum will also be open!
