About The Event

BIG RAPIDS! Last year we kicked off this event at the Gypsy Nickel Lounge. With an abundance of community support and a great turnout for this event, we are taking One Billion Rising Big Rapids to a larger venue this year! Please join us at The Gate to rise up and demand justice! We will be launching sky lanterns in the parking lot at 6:30pm, it will be quite an amazing sight to see and be part of! This year's event is shaping up to be bigger than last year and we hope to see the community joining us to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault and demand an end to violence. Last year the participation was outstanding and we ran out of sky lanterns! We are doubling our order this year! Sky Lanterns have been ordered!! Be a part as we light up the skies over Perry Street! You can reserve your lantern at Fabulous Finds, The Gate, Patterson's Flowers, or the Chamber of Commerce beginning in January 2014!!! Attending the event is free of charge and participating in the lantern launch is optional but encouraged. We hope to have another great turnout this year! See you at The Gate!
