2016 River of Light in Waterbury! Waterbury Vermont

The River of Light is Waterbury's Community Lantern Procession. In December 2010, artists Gowri Savoor and Angelo Arnold worked with school art teacher MK Monley and the pupils of Thatcher Brook Primary School in Waterbury, VT to create over 150 willow and tissue paper lanterns for our inaugural event. Spectators of all ages lined the parade route in support of the parade which was led by Burlington's street Samba band, Sambatucada. The procession was also joined by artists from Central Vermont, who created larger-scale lanterns during a special one-day workshop. And of course none of this would have been possible without our crew of hard-working volunteers.

In 2011, our small community parade began to grow. We extended our school workshops to include Crossett Brook Middle School as well as Thatcher Brook Primary School. The artists' workshop proved to be so popular that we hosted an intensive 2-day event, which was attended by artists from across the region. We held satellite community workshops in Stowe and Waterbury and on December 3rd, Main Street closed its doors to traffic for a few minutes of magic.
