A little midwinter magic is planned for Castlemaine’s Botanical Garden’s tomorrow evening.
The Midwinter Lantern Walk has been marking the arrival of the Winter Solstice every year for at least the past decade, becoming a seasonal favourite for many local families.
“The idea is to create a bit of magic, a magical community memory for the children,” says Edna Reinhardt of Castlemaine’s Over The Moon Yoga and Dance Studios which hosts the free, family event.
All are invited to grab a lantern and participate in the warming walk around the garden’s Lake Joanna, celebrating the Solstice with the lanterns’ glow and some invigorating singing to boot. Full story in today’s Mail …
