Arts Aglow lights up community

Who says Burien ain't a good times town? Where else would you find a whole lot of people who don't have the sense to come in from the rain who make an annual event out of making paper lanterns and such and parading all over town on main streets? It was the annual Burien Arts Commission Art's Aglow festival. There were bands, stilt walkers, puppets and a lot of enthusiastic folks making lanterns and then parading around with their creations around Burien Town Square Park.
The salmon again swim up the rain garden.
This salmon got lit up along with some houses.
One of many popular "lantern puppets" this wily coyote took over from last years Chinese dragon.

Even Romeo gets all duded up for the arts aglow!
Even the recyclers get out- besides my lantern made from a crystal light container, other recyclers/ re-users get in the picture - the park was lined with these lanterns made from pop bottles

What a great idea for a festival! Leave it to Romeo to turn it into a glow stick party. He's wearing green because he's available, right? :)
