A Night of light instead of fright
A family Halloween creative event!

A Magic Lantern Celebration
On the Paseo (NW 30th and Dewey)
Sunday, October 26th

The young and young at heart are invited to come to Paseo for a magical afternoon and evening. The galleries on Paseo transform into workstations where creative minds are encouraged to create costumes that will transform them into a magical being of their choice. As the sun sets, the music starts and a performer from Theater Upon a StarDanceSwan will lead the children in a parade down Paseo that ends in a winding labyrinth where other performers are dancing on top of pumpkins. The evening ends with an enchanting performance by the Theater Upon a StarDanceSwan dancers. This program is offered free of charge to anyone who wants to expand their imagination.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. StarDanceSwan is a non-profit organization; a donation would be appreciated.
