On Thursday, February 21st at 6:00 PM, Montpelier students invite the community to join them in a magical evening lantern parade and celebration! With the festive live music of samba band Sambatucada, students will carry their handmade lanterns through the wintry streets from Union Elementary to the State House Lawn. Our short and sweet finale at the State House Lawn will include free hot cocoa and cider, doughnuts and a dance performance. The route, beginning at 6 PM, is as follows: Left on Loomis Street, Right on School Street, Left on Main Street, Right on Langdon Street, Right on Elm Street, Left on Court Street to the State House Lawn. Streets will be temporary closed as the parade moves along.
