Lighthouse Parade & Glow Party (2019)

Glowing garden set under blacklight

August 2, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The West Powelton Steppers & Drum Line along with Moko.Motion stilt walkers will lead a procession through the neighborhood and into the garden for an evening of dancing and glow-in-the-dark fun.

The neighborhood portion of the procession will consist of local residents who will meet up with and join guests visiting the garden as the procession continues to its final destination. Guests who would like to take part in the procession are welcome to join once everyone has crossed into the main entrance of Bartram’s Garden (around 6:45) or just come for the performance & party (at 7)~

There will be face painting, giveaways, activities, and the opportunity to observe some nighttime pollinators for National Moth Night! Come dressed in neon colors or white to really shine under the black lights!

There will be some complimentary refreshments while supplies last and the Jerk Chicken Man will be on site with deliciousness available for purchase.
