A New Look for the Festival of Lights

In previous years, Burlington’s Festival of Lights featured a lighted boat parade, which has always been a crowd favorite. This year the boat parade continues, but a new contest promises to give the boats a run for their money. Enter the newest addition to the festival, the Light Sculpture Contest. In previous years, only people who had a boat could use their creative talents to enter the contest to win cash prizes and the hearts of the crowd. Now, anyone with a little creativity and determination can enter the Light Sculpture Contest and make the festival a brighter place.
What is a light sculpture? Simply put, a light sculpture is a wire frame of an object, person or landmark on which tube lights are clipped so that the sculpture can be seen at night. The sculpture is then fixed to the ground with stakes or a riser to lift it higher so it can be seen above the crowd. Many of you have already seen them festively decorate so many lawns during the holidays. Most of these are purchased from stores or online but a few artistic individuals have made their own. If you’ve decided this is something you would like to do as an individual or a group, but you have no idea how to go about it. Don’t worry help is on the way. To enjoy the festivities as a patron, sponsors, vendor, contest and all full event details view the website http://festivaloflightsburlington.com
