Autumn Lights Festival at the Gardens at Lake Merritt
Friday, October 18, 2013 at 6:00 PM - Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 6:00 PM (PDT)
Imagine several acres of garden illuminated with weird and enchanting art installations created by local Bay Area artists. The Gardens at Lake Merritt will be filled with these and other surprises during Oakland’s Autumn Lights Festival on Friday and Saturday, October 18 & 19, 2013 from 6-10PM
Electric fireflies flickering in the trees, glowing waterfalls, a flock of interactive books, a Polynesian Paradise with hand-crafted tiki lanterns and hula girls projected on palm trees, fire art cars and live fire performers light the night. Music and sound installations surprise at every turn on the garden paths that are lit with hundreds of luminarias. Attendees are invited to participate during the evening by coming dressed in their most interesting illuminated garden attire.
A fundraiser for Oakland's hidden jewel, recently named one of California's Top 5 Gardens by VIA Magazine, The Gardens at Lake Merritt are located in the heart of Oakland in Lakeside Park at 666 Bellevue Ave. Funds from this organically grown event will be used for Garden improvements for the enjoyment of the entire community.
The Autumn Lights Festival is hosted by the Friends of the Gardens at Lake Merritt, a 501C-3, and co-sponsored by the City of Oakland, Studio Quercus, Malibu Compost, Echo Landscaping, Alex-Miller Cole, The East Bay Express, East Bay Loop, and Yelp!
