When: Sat., Aug. 23, 4-11 p.m. 2014
Spades Park on the city’s Eastside, acquired in 1898, is heavily wooded and bounded by a creek. It’s a sylvan setting for the annual Feast of Lanterns, a neighborhood festival which features hundreds of handmade paper lanterns, bedecking the trees and illuminating the night. The festival gets started in the afternoon, with games for kids, live musical entertainment and plenty of good food. At dusk there’s a festival parade, the lamps are lit, and the fun really begins. Admission is free and the lanterns are beautiful.
