It’s been a long time since my children took part in one of these workshops and parades but it was a very beautiful sight.
THIS weekend there are free workshops to make willow lanterns for a parade through Port St Mary following Santa’s sleigh three days before Christmas.
The workshops take place tomorrow (Saturday, December 18,) (10am-4pm, the last entry is at 2pm) and on Sunday, December 19, (1pm-6pm, last entry is at 4pm) in Scoill Phurt le Moirrey. All ages are welcome – children must be accompanied by an adult.
The workshops, sponsored by the Isle of Man Arts Council, provide all materials, just imagination is required. The parade leaves Scoill Phurt le Moirrey at 6.30pm on Wednesday, December 22 and follows Santa’s sleigh to Paddy’s Market in the quay, where there is a Christmas market
