Lantern Parade

  • Parc International (map)

This fall, Lafayette will celebrate St. Martins Day with a traditional lantern parade! Partnered with Downtown Alive! and a part of this year's new children's program, DTA Kids!, Theatre Acadie will host the children's area located between the Children's Museum of Acadiana and Parc International. We will have a lantern making activity for kids utilizing recycled materials. The kids will learn a traditional St. Martin's Day Lantern Walk Song (see below), and at 6 p.m sharp the children will march around Parc International led by the Veteran Grand Marshall of Lafayette's 2017 Lantern Parade (see below on how to nominate).

Guests from the AMERICAN LEGION will join us to make lanterns. We will have a donation station ready to accept donations to help this marvelous organization to continue to help veterans and people of Lafayette.
