The Lantern Lighting Celebration at the Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis is time and place for you to honor, celebrate and remember a loved one.  It takes place the evening of September 15th from 4:30-8.  The cost is very reasonable, only $5. *The $5 donation (ticket fee) covers the use of one lantern, lantern sleeve and decorating supplies. It will also help fund the Lakewood Heritage Foundation.

You can purchase tickets in advance here on their website.   You will also find the schedule as well as suggestions on what to bring.

There are many ways to honor loved ones who have passed. This is an opportunity to gather with family, friends and others on Lakewood’s lovely grounds for a moving and meaningful experience.

Join us at Lakewood on Saturday, September 15th from 4:30–8:00 p.m. for Lakewood’s fourth annual Lantern Lighting Celebration, a unique evening of creativity, beauty and remembrance.

Art supplies will be provided for you to decorate your own floating lantern with words of love and remembrance. Local musicians will perform while you create, and food vendors will be on hand with a variety of food and refreshments (for purchase). At dusk we will light our lanterns and release them on to Lakewood’s lake, Jo Pond, in a beautiful ceremony. The effect is breathtaking and magical—connecting us to our loved ones and to each other.
