Lakewood 2nd Annual Cemetery Lantern Lighting Ceremony
Lakewood Cemetery invites the public to its second annual Lantern Lighting Celebration on Saturday, September 17, 5:00-8:00 p.m.With more than 400 attendees at last year's first-time event, this celebration promises to be a unique evening of beauty, remembrance and entertainment for the whole family.
Lakewood's Lantern Lighting Celebration offers an opportunity for people and their families to honor deceased loved ones by decorating a floating lantern in their memory. The event is celebratory in nature with live contemporary folk music by Jack Klatt & the Cat Swingers, food trucks and other activities. At dusk, in a nondenominational ceremony, attendees gather to release their candlelit lanterns onto Lakewood's eight-acre lake, while the names of loved ones are read aloud.
Throughout the event, guests can also take self-guided tours of the cemetery (by downloading Lakewood's mobile app which features eight different tours) and ride the historic streetcar from Lakewood's old streetcar gate to Lake Harriet and back for $2 round trip (from the Minnesota Streetcar Museum).
New this year - Lakewood's Memorial Chapel (built in 1910, on the National Register of Historic Places) and award-winning Garden Mausoleum (completed in 2011) will be open from 3:00-6:30 p.m., with information about the history and/or architecture of the buildings available inside.
The event is free and open to the public, with the exception of an optional $5 donation for a lantern and $2 streetcar rides from the Minnesota Streetcar Museum.
People can reserve a lantern by registering for the event in advance. For more information, including how to register, go to lakewoodcemetery.com, call 612-822-2171, or see more on the event page at facebook.com/LakewoodCemetery.
