The City of Suwanee invites the community to “get lit” in Town Center on Saturday, April 15th at Glow in the Park, the first community lantern parade. Inspired by the Atlanta Beltline Parade, Glow in the Park will feature a strolling jazz band leading an illuminated pageant of light, music and color through Old Town Suwanee and down the Brushy Creek Trail, ending at a concert starring 80’s cover band Electric Avenue at Town Center Park. According to Amy Doherty, Events & Outreach Manager for the City of Suwanee, “This is a community celebration of creativity; everyone is strongly encouraged to create and carry their pre-made lanterns to parade together. This electrical spectacle is family and pet-friendly, so everyone can join in.”
There are lantern making workshops hosted by North Gwinnett Arts Association at the Center for the Arts on March 28th and April 4th and a special “Make and Take” at Food Truck Friday on April 7th. For more information, visit Suwanee.com.
