Weekend Pick: “Light The Woods with Sound” at Dix Park

There is a really cool event your whole family can enjoy at Dix Park in Raleigh that starts tonight and continues over the next three weekends that I wanted to let everyone known about.

Local visual and neon artist Nate Scheafer created 384 neon light tubes which will hang in the trees of Dix Park. Connected to a theremin, an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact, artists will perform songs and musical interpretations that will Light The Woods with Sound.

For a sneak peek of what the light installation looks like check out these wonderful pictures @netposer share in his instagram feed.

Light The Woods with Sound – Event Details:
Dix Park & Raleigh Arts is hosting this first-of-its-kind sound and light show in the beautiful oak trees of Flowers Field (May 11th-13th, 18th-20th & 25th-27th). This is a FREE event where over the course of the next three weekends attendees can watch as musicians produce beautiful music and neon lights dance in the trees. Each night will feature different performers, different musical themes and different experiences – no two nights will be the same!

There will be different food trucks each night and you can also bring your own food, chairs and blankets and have a picnic under the stars as you enjoy the show. You can even BYOB (Beer and wine only). Leashed, well-behaved dogs are also welcome.

This event is FREE, but please register if you plan to attendRegistering helps the event organizers know how many people to plan for, and we can alert you if we have to cancel due to weather.
