Event organizer Sarah Read says folks will be walking with lanterns to share some light as the days become shorter.

“It’s really just an idea of getting people from all corners of our city to come out together.”

Daylight Saving Time will return at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday, March 11.  In the meantime: don’t forget to set your clock back an hour and enjoy the extra hour of sleep.
