Illuminares Lantern Procession
Damn, I left my camera at home–so no pics.
Anyway one of my favourite events in Vancouver happened last night. Every year in late July the Public Dream Society puts on a phenomenal free public party (cause i can’t think of a better word for it) in Trout Lake park. There are fire jugglers, stilt walkers, Hare Krishna’s, drum bands, random musicians, wild paper mache lanterns everywhere, and even a modest little fireworks show. Everyone takes part; everyone is part of the show somehow.
They’ve got a couple more events coming up this summer. Check out thier calendar for a list and times, and definately come out for at least one.
