what's next on your to do list?
We’ve got lots of amazing things planned for you to see, do and experience and will be doing our traditional procession around the lake at 9:45pm. Three different bands will leave from points around the lake to lead the procession. Simply follow a band, and you’ll be led to the finale spot at the northeast corner of the park. The grand finale will be a spectacular 30-person fire show byRadiant Heat at 10:15pm.
The event at Trout Lake will begin at6:00pm on Saturday, July 21 and there will be areas for the public to install illuminated works, along with a music space where community and professional musicians will jam together. Community installations can access the park at 5:00pm. If your work is particularly large or requires more setup time, please contact the office and we’ll work with you to ensure that you’re able to fulfill your vision.
