Every year on the Winter Solstice, Minor Mishap Marching Band hosts a Winter Solstice Lantern Parade – our crown jewel event of each year! The Winter Solstice Lantern Parade is coming again soon – on December 21st, 2018.
Minor Mishap’s Winter Solstice Lantern is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department. This project is also supported by the generous involvement of our Krewe de Mishappiness members! You can learn about (and join) the Krewe de Mishappiness here: https://squareup.com/store/minor-mishap-marching-band
Minor Mishap would like to extend a special thank you to Mueller Lake Park for allowing us to use their gorgeous space, in support of community and art!
Please make lanterns! The beauty of this event is in everyone’s individual lantern coming together with everyone else’s. (Please base your lanterns on flashlights… flames will get us in trouble very quickly). It’s easy to make a beautiful light-diffuser out of paper or fabric or a jar or by poking hols in a can…and attach it to a flashlight. This site has some really nice ideas for making lanterns.
If you don’t find time to make lanterns, please join us anyway!
