7th Annual Harvest Lantern Labyrinth Walk

7th Annual Harvest Lantern Labyrinth Walk 1Let’s “Light up the Labyrinth” together – from 6:30 – 9:00 PM on September 11th, 2015.
On Friday September 11th, the warm glow of more than 600 candlelit luminaries will flicker along the path of Carleton Place’s Community Labyrinth for this year’s “Light up the Labyrinth” event. The labyrinth is located at the corner of George and Baines Streets beside the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum, 267 Edmund Street in Carleton Place.

To make this event more collaborative – organizers are asking participants to gather at 6:30 PM at the labyrinth to prepare and place luminaries for a 7:30 PM candlelit walk.

Bring out your lanterns, glow sticks or flashlights and join our evening walk.
Debby Lytle, Chairperson for the Labyrinth Committee, explains: “We are a very small committee and really need some extra hands to make this event happen. Join us at the labyrinth at 6:30 PM to help assemble and place the luminaries, then everyone will have a chance to be part of lighting up the labyrinth at 7:30 PM before the walk begins. If you have a BBQ lighter bring it along and if people are able to stay and assist with the dismantling of the luminaries at the end of the night, that would be a great help as well!”

7th Annual Harvest Lantern Labyrinth WalkThe Labyrinth Committee of Carleton Place invites you to bring out your lanterns, glow sticks or flashlights and join our evening walk. This year, we are fortunate to once again have live guitar and didgeridoo music by local musician Kerron Lamb.

Our candlelit labyrinth walks have become a popular fall event, as individuals and families from across the region bring along their festive lanterns, and enjoy an evening labyrinth walk. “Children love this particular night-time event. It’s a chance to bring along one of their own lantern creations.” says Julia Heathcote, a volunteer labyrinth keeper. To add to the after-dark fun, Carleton Place jugglers Michael and Kayla McNeely will be doing a “glow in the dark” juggling demonstration.

For those who wish to relax and watch the candlelight, garden benches and a wheelchair-accessible contemplation ring encircle the labyrinth. If you would like to sit for a while and take in the candlelight glow, bring along a lawn chair too.

Thanks to support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Town of Carleton Place and individuals and businesses within our community, this permanent labyrinth exists for people to use at any time.
