Since Morningside Lights first set off through the park in 2012, its core mission has been to bring people together in a shared act of artistic expression. This year's procession takes place on September 30, 2023 at 8 p.m., but for those interested in participating in a workshop to help make the lanterns for the procession, registration opens up on September 6, 2023.

Lanterns take shape in a collaborative building process from start to finish. Each lantern passes through different hands during the week of September 24, highlighting the creativity of its makers at every stage. You can learn more about the workshops and timing here. 

Work alongside Morningside Lights’ artistic directors, Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles, innovators in the world of processional art. Workshops are open to anyone, with tasks geared toward older kids (10+) and adults. No experience is necessary - one will be provided.
