Interactive view of Morningside Light’s annual parade in Harlem’s Morningside Park

20130921-210737.jpg

We attended Morningside Light’s annual parade this evening.  The parade originated on the North end of Harlem’s Morningside Park, wound it’s way South past the waterfall, onto the ball field, out onto Manhattan avenue down towards 1q0th street, and finally towards 116th and Broadway.

The parade is the culmination of a new weeklong arts event, culminating in an illuminated procession of public art in Morningside Park – this year on  Saturday, September 21.

Workshops were held to build a fleet of giant papier-mâché lanterns and hand-made musical instruments in free guided workshops at Miller Theatre at Columbia University.

The sights and sounds made you feel like you were swimming in the ocean among all sorts of glowing and singing sea creatures, intermingling with parents and kids of all kinds.

Morningside Park has certainly come a long way.  This was so much fun.  Please join in next year!

In the meantime, the pictures and videos below speak for themselves.
