Creative Alliance is hosting the annual Great Halloween Lantern Parade on Saturday October 27th at 7:30 pm. This is a parade featuring handmade lanterns, floats, bands, stilt walkers, etc. Sounds like alot of fun. I have never been and will not be able to make it this year either. It conflicts with my brother's annual Halloween party which is a can't miss event on my calendar. I guess there's always next year... or a rain date, which is the very next evening.
There is an Urban Pumpkin Patch at the First and Franklin Street Presbyterian Church on Madison St. There is a large selection of pumpkins, indian corn and gourds for you fall decorating needs. There are also baked goods available. They have daily hours through the season.
The real can't miss event of the week will be Bill Frisell Trio at An Die Musik. Bill Frisell is a wonderful guitarist. He quietly and magically plays on the stage as if he is playing solely for himself and is delighted that eveyone else seems to like it too. He will hardly say a word but he will speak volumes with his guitar. It's a real treat and I will be there for the Tuesday evening show. Go to the An Die website now and buy your tickets. It is a small, intimate venue and this event will sell out.
