Festival of Lights

Help the Pagosa Peak Open School Community welcome Winter with traditional celebrations from around the world. In preparation for the Festival of Lights school showcase coming up on December 8th, the mixed-age classrooms at Pagosa Peak Open School have been making art, practicing songs, learning stories, and rehearsing skits. The Festival will begin at 5:00pm with a chili dinner, and followed by performances by various student groups. To raise funds for the school’s project-based learning expeditions, students will be selling ornaments, pies, and casseroles. A gift-basket live auction will be held at 6:30, followed by a lantern-lighting ceremony (bundle up). The event is admission-free and open to the general public. Dinner will be served for a $5 suggested donation, and paper lanterns will also be for sale to the larger public for $5/lantern.

We hope to see you there.

Comments
This just in — after feeling pretty confident that we will not receive sufficient moisture by the time of the event, the Fire Department has asked that we look for an alternative to the sky lanterns. Although we're disappointed that we will not have a gorgeous mass-ascension, no one wants to see Pagosa burn. Instead, we have decided to have a lantern-lighting on the ground. Each lantern can be "sponsored" with a name, wish, or dedication attached, and we will light them all together, to symbolize the warmth that comes from community joining together. The lanterns can then be used for many more occasions. We will also have pathways of luminarias that anyone can contribute towards by decorating a bag.
Just checking on the safety of the lantern fest...
do you think fire department needs to be notified due to such a dry season (wind conditions, etc)? I love the- these events are stunning.
Wish I could come but we will be in Greeley to watchGraduate
