Things To Do

Lanterns and parades, oh my!

It’s workshops, handmade lanterns, and processions this month at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University.

From Sept. 14 through 21, children 8 years and older, with parental supervision, are encouraged to put their creative skills to use by building illuminated lanterns and fantastical sea-inspired sculptures in a community workshop (call for times).

On Sept. 21, from 2 to 5 pm, the Family Craft Table is open for adding finishing touches to the works of art, and at 8 pm, kids can parade their creations in a procession beginning in Morningside Park.

The daily workshops are held at Miller Theatre at Columbia University, located at 2960 Broadway.

The Family Craft Table will be held in the park at 114th Street and Morningside Avenue, and the procession kicks off at 116th Street and Morningside Avenue. All events are free and open to the public.
