GLOW is an illuminated night parade weaving through the Boyle Street neighbourhood, featuring enormous animated lanterns hand-made by the community. GLOW’S theme for 2019 is Outer Space, and all the wonders it holds.

Artists and community members will come together to walk through the Boyle Street Community with handmade lantern floats. The lantern parade took place March 23, 2019, 7:30 pm
