Olympia's delightful spring Arts Walk weekend opened last night with booths of artisans and food and artists with their work on display in business venues all over town. Come nightfall, many gathered for the Luminaria parade from the Capitol Theater to Capitol Lake.
This was one of my favorite of the lanterns. There is a person inside the skirt moving the arms and head like an Indonesian puppet. It was wonderful.
There were several other lanterns, opening and closing as they moved down the street.
The pea and the pepper were a lovely surprise.
And Mr. Puffin looked adorable.
This sea creature was a top three favorite.
But no surprise, the hummingbird was my number one!
In spite of the misty rain that came and went, it was still a starry night.
