Event Details

Monadnock Peer Support is excited to bring you our 2nd annual Floating Lantern Festival for Mental Health Awareness happening on Saturday, May 11th from 5:30 to 8:30pm at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole. The Floating Lantern Festival is a beautiful and awe-inspiring event where participants gather to release hundreds of floating lanterns into the water at dusk. These lanterns represent the light that we can all bring into the world and into the lives of those around us. As they float on the water, they serve as a powerful reminder that no one is alone in their struggles and that there is always hope for a brighter future. In the Asian tradition, we will honor friends and family who struggle with mental health and work towards breaking the stigma. Please join us as we decorate, light and float lanterns at dusk! This is a family friendly event! * Bring a picnic supper, chair and /or a blanket and a flashlight * Alyson’s Tavern will have food for sale * Music, dancing and fun! * FREE entry to the event * Lanterns are for sale for $15 each or you can pre-purchase for $10 * There will be plenty of markers and stencils to decorate your lantern.
