Sip-N-Parol: A Philippine Christmas Lantern Class
October 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Museum of Science and History to learn how to make a parol. A parol is a Filipino ornamental lantern displayed during the Christmas season and a local adaptation of the Hispanic tradition of carrying small light sources during the nine-day Christmas Novena procession leading up to the midnight mass in the Philippines. Expert partners from Jax Filipinos (School of Language and Culture) guide participants in creating the parol and larger completed parols will be available for purchase.
Admission to the event includes all needed materials to create a parol and light refreshments. The minimum age is 15 years old to participate. This event is part of the “MOSH Passport Series” which focuses on education and appreciation of diverse cultures throughout Northeast Florida.
Funding for this program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
