The Lantern Festival
Last night marks the second annual Lantern Festival in our Little town of Duvall. The town folk have been working on their Lanterns for a couple of weeks awaiting this night. They came out by the dozens, first gathering at the depot for some warm homemade local Vegetable soup and then gathering at the Valley House Brewery to begin the walk through town to celebrate that the "season is shifting and that the light is returning", This is one of the things that make this little valley community so special
Here is a list of the people that helped make this happen
