Light-UP Lantern Festival

The Fourth Annual Light-UP Lantern Festival took place last weekend in University Park. Despite some intermittent uncooperative weather, the gypsy style "Caravan of Lights" themed celebration was a success. Founder Leandra Drumm and Art Director Daniel Coffield are very proud of this unique celebration that is family-friendly, free and open to the public

Starting at Don Drumm Studios at 6 pm this past Saturday, the lantern procession meandered its way through the University Park neighborhood amid performers and cheerful onlookers. Between the stilt walkers, musicians, fire artists, interactive shadow puppets and imaginative performance artists, there was plenty for adults and children alike to be entertained by.
