Harvest Lanterns Light Up the Night!

On Saturday September 29th, the warm glow of lanterns of all shapes and sizes will illuminate the path of Carleton Place's community labyrinth for our 4th annual "Harvest Lantern Labyrinth Walk". Festivities take place at 7:00 pm. behind the Carleton Place & Beckwith Heritage Museum at the corner of George and Baines Streets in Carleton Place.

The Labyrinth Committee of Carleton Place invites you to bring out your lanterns and join us in an evening walk. Hundreds of flickering luminaries will be set up along the labyrinth’s path and colourful handcrafted lanterns will be set aglow in Carleton Place’s recently declared “Labyrinth Park”.
TLC Chairperson Debby Lytle says: “Along with a candlelit path lit by hundreds of luminaries, expect to enjoy music, and free refreshments – all chosen for the harvest theme. For those who are new to the labyrinth experience, it’s a perfect chance to visit the site and discover the serenity and simplicity of walking a labyrinth."

The "Harvest Lantern Labyrinth Walk" has become a popular fall event, as individuals and families from across the region bring along their festive lanterns, enjoy a walk in the crisp autumn air, and cozy up to a roaring bonfire. Garden benches and a wheelchair-accessible contemplation ring encircle the labyrinth for those who wish to relax and watch the candlelight.
Thanks to support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Town of Carleton Place and individuals and businesses within our community, this permanent labyrinth can be visited at any time. A Committee volunteer is available onsite each Tuesday from 9 to 10 am. throughout the fall to provide a guided walk.
