The inaugural Stoke Lantern Parade took place on Saturday, March 19. The event, which celebrated spring, sought to bring the community together for a creative group project. “Let’s carry the intention of calling all of humanity back to its roots and calling spring back to the mountains,” read the Facebook invite. “We will create the spectacle to spark the minds of those around us, and jumpstart our own creative intentions for the new season!”
