Luminary Tradition Continues
In 2017 Guemes Islanders, friends, and family came together to learn the craft of creating lighted paper and reed luminary lanterns. The varied creations lit up South Shore for the 1st and 2nd Guemes Earth Day Luminary Parades - and the tradition continues.
The 3rd annual Guemes Earth Day Luminary Parade is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 and, once again, it will be preceded by a series of luminary workshops taught by luminary artist and Guemes resident, Loalynda Bird, beginning in March.
