2014's Lumins theme is The Soil of Earth
Read what we're up to now, consider what you like to do yourself for Lumins this year and remember there are very few restrictions: Be safe ! Remember there are families. Open flames are for professional, permitted performers only.
Rains with floods curtailed attendance, but did not dissuade us from celebrating. The theme was The Oceanic, after all . .
Delight & Joy are the aims of our Lumins Festivus, in The Oceanic seascape of 2013's theme.
Music is an essential element of Tacoma's Northwest cultural life, and in 2013 artist Jeremy Leveque crafted 54 Ocarinas shaped like adobe dwellings, and we inscribed them with images denoting compassion, our place in the world and the original voice of our people.
