Annual North End Children's Candle Lantern Parade

Join your friends & neighbors for one of the North End's most festive traditions: the Children's Candle Lantern Parade!

Event starts at 6:30 pm in Hyde Park and includes a visit with Santa Claus, hot chocolate at Goody's, a Boise Fire Department Engine, caroling, and the main event: the Annual Candle Lantern Parade! Children of all ages will carry hand-crafted candle lanterns through Hyde Park while spreading cheer with carols. 

Please pick up a FREE candle lantern kit in advance anytime between 12/1 - 12/14 from Goody's in Hyde Park. Simply ask the wonderful Goody's staff for as many kits as you need, and then craft lanterns at home before the event - but  don't forget to bring them along on the 15th.


Lantern kits will include everything needed to craft lanterns, except glue. At home, glue the tissue paper squares onto the provided clear plastic cup to create a stained-glass type of design. Pipe cleaners are used as handles, and a battery-operated tea light is included. Get creative - the more unique the better!

This is a free community event for North End families and children sponsored by the North End Neighborhood Association.
