This year's annual event from the Creative Alliance, dubbed "Kaleidoscope," will showcase over 1,000 colorful lanterns made by your neighbors and friends. The festival, which starts at 3:30 p.m. at Patterson Park, will be loaded with food trucks, lantern workshops, hayrides, crafts, vendors, live bands and a children's costume contest. Then, at 7 p.m., watch floats, stilt walkers, dancers and your neighbors walk the parade into Annex Park on Eastern and Linwood avenues. All of this is free, but the 9 p.m. adults-only dance party and costume contest, Glow Ball, at the Creative Alliance (3134 Eastern Ave.) is $9-$12. creativealliance.org.
