About the event

On Spring Equinox, day and night are equal, light and dark are in perfect balance. Let’s celebrate the return of the sun, of balance, and of the love that got us through the dark of winter by filling the east end with light - inside lanterns! We may not yet be able to gather, but let’s all create something together. 

 Shadowland Theatre and East End Arts invite you and your family to join us, to learn how to create your own lantern of light and love! At 7:30pm on March 20, to mark the equinox when light and dark are in balance, we will all bring our lanterns on to our porches or balconies or driveways or windows, and share some light with our neighbours. Follow along with Shadowland Theatre live on Facebook during the event for more festivites. 

we ask that you plan to participate by sharing your lantern from your porch or balcony, and share pictures with us and your neighbours online using the hashtag #EastEndLove rather than gathering in person. We are all in this together, apart.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Make a lantern with us! Lanterns will be designed to be made at home using materials you have on hand. In addition to a pre-recorded video where you can learn first hand about making your lantern, Shadowland will make available a “how to” instruction sheet and we will share it on our social channels, so stay tuned. A limited number of materials kits will be available for pick up at a spot close to Crescent Town – stay tuned for more details on that.

A NOTE ON SAFETY

The goal of this program is to celebrate safely without gathering. Depending on the status of safe gatherings on March 20th, 2021, Shadowland hopes to parade some of their most spectacular lanterns through the community, but we ask that you plan to participate by sharing your lantern from your porch, balcony, front yard or window, and share pictures with us and your neighbours online using the hashtag #EastEndLove rather than gathering in person. We are all in this together, apart!
