Paul and I went back to our old 'hood for the 10th annual Patterson Park Lantern Parade [creativealliance.org].This Ukranian church faces the park.
The sky was looking awlfully cool as the sun set.
The sun sets on Eastern Avenue.
Our friends Ann and Ian have worked the parade for the last 3 years.

someone's cool spider lantern
Most excellent puppet lantern
Me and my little witch lantern I made. (I made a few of the lantern bags for the movie “Liberty Heights” like 12 years ago, still had them in the basement, so took one of them and attached it to a stick with some wire.)
