Loppet Foundation

How do you make a thousand luminaries?

With 100 enthusiastic volunteers, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 …

Fill a thousand buckets with lake water in two hours using the amazing “Water Cow”

Let them incubate overnight

Give them a quick dip in a warm bath

Pop them out of their shell

Cut a big hole in the top

Dump the water back into the lake

Put them in cold storage to await Luminary Loppet evening

And celebrate success on a beautiful winter’s day
