TACOMA CELEBRATES FESTIVUS WITH LUMINARIAS
Tacoma's Festivus celebrates our Northwest character and community culture
from Salmon Beach to the Dome District and beyond with a lighted sculptural
procession with music in the streets every autumn. Last year's September
Festivus coordinated with Broadway Center's Fall Free 4 All, and surprised Vicci
Martinez for her acoustic birthday show.
The event will bring joy to the streets on Sept. 28, starting at 7:30 p.m. at
Seymour Conservatory in Wright Park. Learn more at http://www.tacomasoutsidersguide.com/what-when--why.html.
A video of last year's Festivus and examples of lighted sculpture, called
luminarias, can be found under the Gallery tab at the top of the page.
Festivus organizers are introducing families and artists to the event and
demonstrating how to make the sculptures every from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday
evenings at Good Karma's Art Space, at 711 St. Helens Ave. Festivus reps will
also be at the Thursday Broadway Farmer's Markets through Sept. 26.
On Tuesday, Sept 24, they will be at the 6th Ave Farmer's Market Harvest Fest
and on Sept 26 at First Night's “Diner en Blanc” at Wright Park.
At 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 28, participants make their way from the conservatory
to downtown's Theater District. There will be music and hula and an after-party
at Tacoma Cabana, with a very special surprise. All are welcome, oldest to
youngest, youngest to oldest. This is a family event and sculptures are expected
to be big, bright, interesting, fun, light hearted, high minded.
