Sandy Springs Hospitality & Tourism is proud to present the inaugural Sandy Springs Lantern Parade on June 18 at Morgan Falls Park. Chantelle Rytter, creator of the very successful Beltline, Grant Park and Decatur Lantern Parades, will produce our unique “Take It To The River” lantern parade. Chantelle is working to create new lanterns, and her floating alligator, Alice, will be the centerpiece of the event, as she glides through the Chattahoochee River. This inaugural parade is sure to attract a large number of participants, as well as spectators for a night you won't forget! Every moment will be a photo op! And it's FREE!


Don't have a lantern? Stay tuned for updates on fabulous Lantern Workshops where you can learn to create your own illuminated masterpiece. We'll announce the details on May 1st. 

The parade will begin at North Springs United Methodist Church at 9 p.m. and will wind down to Morgan Falls Park where the Morgan Falls dam is located. After the parade, our shuttle sponsor, Atlanta Movie Tours, Inc. will drive you back to the starting point.
