Launceston City Park Lantern Walk

The Lantern Walk is a time to honour the seasonal transition from Autumn to Winter and our lanterns represent taking light into the darker, shorter days. It is also a time to celebrate sharing with others. Traditionally, the Lantern Walk celebrates Saint Martin of Tours, a Roman Soldier who became a monk. The most famous legend of his life is that he once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the beggar’s life. Bring a home-made lantern (extra lanterns will be available if you don’t’ have your own), tea-light candles and long matches
