GLOW: A Festival of Fire





Save to:

Cooper Street and Abbott Square will be glowing with fire dancing, flaming fire art sculptures, radiating music and dancing in the streets. Local fire artists will show their latest burning man creations of fire art that will ignite into musical flames, burning dragonflies and fire cannonades.

Lucy Hosking’s fire breathing pipe organ, Satan’s Calliope, will light up Cooper Street. Bob Hoffman’s Wishing Well will show you the beauty of spinning fire. Fire sculptures by Jeff Caplan, Ezra Manners and Lisa Martin will amaze and inspire you. Bonefire Cannonade performances and a flaming piano will send flames shooting into the sky.

The Dancetronauts will fill the street with dancing and pulsating music from 7-9PM. From 9-10PM enjoy fire dancing, stilts, dancing and percussion by the Samba Stilt Circus.

So come enjoy the show. Come GLOW!
