This year’s 15th Annual Parade is ALL NEW! Creative Alliance teachers have designed a new lantern and it’s FULL of brilliant hues. We also have a MUCH more dramatic Parade route that will start at the Boat Lake and cross over to the high ridge in the extension of the Park so the Parade can be seen on high. The marching bands have returned, as well as The Gathering’s Food Trucks, and we’re recruiting more than two dozen artists and students to create 17 monumental lanterns and performances.
3:30pm Festival in Pulaski Monument, Patterson Park (Eastern and Linwood Avenues) Lantern workshops, hayrides, family fun, crafts vendors, 20 food trucks, and bands.
