Winter Solstice Luminary Walk- Tuesday, December 21, 2021

Winter naturally invites us to slow down in rhythm with the landscape around us. This seasonal cycle of rest and reflection offers balance to our inner lives. When we are quiet and listen, we can often give ourselves what we need. A restorative time of year, the winter solstice marks a solar turning point, where the darkest day turns the corner to renewed light and we welcome the season of winter. Please join us for a peaceful self led walk lit up with over 1000 luminaries through the Historic Downtown Chelan, Riverwalk Park and up to the Old Bridge. Self-led walk begins at 5pm, and ends by 8pm.


Enjoy a weekly firework show in the Lake Chelan Valley! The fireworks will be shooting off from Chelan (Don Morse Park) at 6:30pm on Friday November 26th, Saturday December 11th, and at 9pm on Friday December 31st. They will be shooting off from Manson Bay at 6:30pm on Saturday November 27th, Saturday December 4th, and Saturday December 18th.
