Critters Created out of Repurposed Plastic Bottles..

CROWD HALLOWEEN PICIn Wildlights Wildlife critters of the park are created out of repurposed plastic bottles! Water bottles become fish! Milk jugs turn into owls! Floats of bats, serpents, spiders and squirrels glow!  Large scale projections light up the night with horses coursing across the Pulaksi Monument and animal eyes and paws peeking out of the bubble over the Ice Rink. Marching bands March: The Westsiders, the Baltimore All Stars and more! Parade faves Sac Au Lait roll out. A cadre of artists from the avant-garde bring their floats and creative talent. Tree Spirit Stilters grow tall! A big fire dancing show closes the Parade! Everyone is invited to create a costume or a lantern and join in the Parade!!!!!
