We encourage you to make flame-free lanterns in the days leading up to the event! (It’s a good crafting project to do with the kiddos!) Gather your lights, lanterns, and bairn and meet us in Mueller Lake Park. We will start at 6 pm, outside Mueller Central and walk around the lake counter-clockwise, to finish at the Amphitheater. Mueller Lake Park is an ADA-compliant space, and we will be sticking to the path to make sure everyone can participate. This is a litter-free, trash-free, and flame-free event. (Noooo releasing lanterns into the sky/water) Please take your beautiful lanterns home with you! The Winter Solstice Lantern Parade is a free and family-friendly community event! All are welcome.

Minor Mishap Marching Band is a 25-piece renegade brass band playing original tunes inspired by everything from pickled beets to disco.

There are approximately one million videos with ideas for homemade lanterns, but here are a couple cute ones.

Lanterns from plastic bottles!

Paper lanterns!

Amal Giant Puppet

October 20, 2023 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Amal Giant Puppet
with Glass Half Full Theater Company
Congress Bridge to Capitol Grounds, Austin, TX 78701

Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl who has traveled across 15 countries meeting more than a million people. She will journey 6,000 miles across the United States in one of the largest free public festivals ever created. 

Everyone is welcome to walk with Amal. 

When Amal unwittingly stumbles upon the cloud of bats that live and migrate through Austin’s community. She discovers that even in the dark, you can find your way… 

Join Glass Half Full Theatre, American Artists Project, Cave Lady Studios and Creative Action to welcome Amal to our city with a message of hope from Austin’s local leaders, musicians and hundreds of bat puppets created by artists of all ages. 

It is always free to walk with Amal. To help make a difference The Amal Fund with Choose Love supports displaced children across the world. If you can, please make a donation today:

There are TWO chances to see Amal in Austin, Texas! Minor Mishap is only playing at the Oct 20th event, but both events will be amazing.
