PRESS RELEASE: River of Light Lantern Parade in Waterbury this Saturday

Gowry Savoor writes: The time is nearly upon us for the second annual River of Light Lantern Parade in Waterbury, taking place this Saturday December 3rd 2011, 5pm to 6pm.

This year's event will be bigger and brighter than before, featuring Burlington’s 20-person street samba band, Sambatucada in the lead and amazing lantern creations made by the students from Thatcher Brook Primary School, Crossett Brook Middle School, artists from Central Vermont and community members from Waterbury, Stowe and Montpelier. There will be some spectacular structures on show, including "Smog" a 16ft willow and paper dragon and a few more surprises.

The parade will leave the Vermont State Complex on Main Street at 5pm, and will make its way up Main Street, down Stowe Street and across Railroad Street, ending at Rusty Parker Park for the Waterbury Rotary’s annual Tree Lighting.

This event is absolutely free to attend. Please show your support and join us in celebrating the season with an evening of light, music, creative arts and community spirit.
