City of Martensville Hosts Unique Winter Activity

by Shanine Sealey

The City of Martensville will be offering a unique opportunity this December. On Sunday, December 12th, they will be partnering up with SaskOutdoors, Sask Lotteries, and Wildernook Fresh Air Learning to offer a magical evening lantern walk experience.

The first step of this event will include lantern building indoors at the North Ridge Community Centre, which will be followed by a Lantern Walk throughout Kinsmen Park, that will depart from and return to the Community Centre.

This is a family-friendly event, where those participating can spend hands-on creative time together constructing lanterns, then enjoy a guided interpretive walk afterwards, all while joining families internationally, who bring light into the darkest days of the year by participating in lantern walks.

The Lantern Walk will provide an opportunity for kids to share their light in an outdoor lantern procession. All children must attend with an adult and those attending should be able to comfortably walk on uneven ground as the event will be on foot. It is recommended to bring warm layers; long underwear, winter jackets, winter boots, toques, mitts, etc. so you are comfortable outdoors for approximately 30 to 40 minutes during the lantern walk. Those with younger children can also consider pulling a sled.

Register for this event by visiting www.martensville.ca. Registration closes on Friday, December 10th. Available timeslots include 5:00pm, 6:30pm and 8:00pm.

Proof of vaccination and ID will be required, as well as masks for each person attending to wear indoors. Anyone experiencing COVID symptoms, or recently in contact with a positive case are asked to stay home.
