This event beckons the return to light on the eve of the winter solstice, every December 21st. On this longest night thousands of decorated revelers take part, with hand-made emblematic lanterns, encountering on route, tented-theatrical scenarios of shadow play, rooftop masking antics, roving giant puppets and stilted dancers with eclectic musical accompaniment. All are illuminated by the glow of fire breathers and spinners, a Fire Finale in Alexandra Park, and a community feast for the numerous volunteers harkening the return to light.
