The City Repair Project announces the Firefly Community Lantern Walk to be held along Portland’s river front on September 25, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm. The FIREFLY COMMUNITY LANTERN WALK is a community-based event held to promote connection to natural cycles. The event seeks to create a space for Portland community members to gather together to acknowledge the passing from summer to autumn - to celebrate the harvest and acknowledge the shifting in balance of light.
Participants will gather at the Main Street Plaza on the Eastbank Esplanade (at SE Main Street & SE Water Avenue) and will walk a circular route around the river. Participants are asked to bring a lantern or lights to carry on a 2.5 mile route along the Eastbank Esplanade, over the Steel Bridge, and back along Waterfront Park to the Hawthorne Bridge. Lighted bikes are encouraged to start out first and be a vanguard for the procession. There will be a ReWare event on September 19th focussed on making lanterns! We hope you will add your light to ours to create a very special event!
