Weekend Pick: Under the Silver Moon Lantern Parade in Downtown Cary – Saturday, January 14th

The weather looks perfect for the “Under the Silver Moon” Lantern Parade in downtown Cary this Saturday, January 14th at 6pm. This event is a collaboration between A River of Light and the Town of Cary as part of their GLOW 2023 outdoor exhibit.

The event will include live music from the Bulltown Strutters as well as a drum circle by OneTribe Rythms and fire dancing by Caroleeena’s Circle of Joy.

This event is FREE & family friendly, everyone is welcome (except our furry friends please, they’ll have more fun at home).
