All Ages Attended Talbot Avenue Bridge Lantern Walk

About 50 people braved the fall’s first blustery streak last Saturday to sing and carry lanterns across the Talbot Avenue Bridge in the inaugural Talbot Avenue Bridge Lantern Walk. North Woodside resident Anna White conceived the event as a way to build off of the momentum achieved during September’s centennial celebration for the bridge.
