Arts-A-Glow was back and better than ever on Sept. 10 in Dottie Harper Park.

SLIDESHOW: Arts-A-Glow lights the night with delight

Artist installations, the magical electric procession, food trucks, music and most of all lights of all kinds were part of the annual Arts-A-Glow lantern festival in Dottie Harper Park on Sept. 10.

People arrived early and began making lanterns, showing up in costumes, some quite elaborate, many chock full of lights. As the evening got underway circus acts by SANCA wandered about, stilt walking and trapeze performances were offered by Cabiri and music flowed from the stage.

As darkness fell the true magic became more evident as each installation took on a special self lit isolation in the park, a shadow theater got going holding kids in fascination as characters acted out parts in silhouette on the screen.

Food trucks kept people fed and the weather held keeping spirits positive through the end of the evening.
