8/5 Sun 6:30 “The Possibilities for Peace” Annual Lanterns for Peace Event – Dodgeville. Governor Dodge State Park, Twin Valley Lake. This year we honor the work of the late Joel Gaalswyk, who started this event locally in the mid-1980s. The highlight of the event, at dusk, will be the floating of over 90 hand-colored paper lanterns, linked loosely together as they are pulled slowly out into Twin Valley Lake by a silent canoe. As the darkness deepens, the long arc of glowing lights illumines the night, symbolizing our hope for a world of peace, free of nuclear weapons. “The Possibilities for Peace” is the theme of this year’s event, which begins at 6:30 p.m., with lantern making, music, poetry, children’s stories and presentations. People are invited to bring a dish to share. A park day pass or sticker is required.
