2. Register to participate in the 2023 Solstice Lantern Walk at www.hillsboroughartscouncil.org/solstice. Walk registration is required to           attend. Registering allows you to write in a donation amount. This event is free, but there is a suggested donation of $5.00                per person.


3. Join us at Hillsborough’s Farmers Market Pavilion (144 E Margaret Ln. Hillsborough, NC) to shop giftable work by a                select number of local artists and enjoy live music, hot drinks, warm food, and more at the 2023 Solstice Market both before & after we          light up the night!


After sundown, we’ll follow a procession along Hillsborough’s River Walk, lanterns lighting our collective path toward warmer, brighter days ahead, together.
