A Night of Lights and Music

This past Saturday night a free concert and light show took place at Washington Park. I'd been hearing more and more about it, and it seemed to be something not to miss, especially since Kent and I live within walking distance.

Unfortunately I saw that it started at 8:30 p.m. and that the 3-D architectural light show played with the live Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and projected on Music Hall, would last 40 minutes, but I didn't notice the full schedule. After an afternoon at Jungle Jim's we got back late, and made it just in time to an overwhelmingly full park. We started walking up an aisle, thinking we'd be able to find a spot somewhere on the grass or concrete to sit, but then the people in front of us stopped, and as we turned around to the front, no one was moving there either. In fact more people kept flooding in. We stood as close to wise early birds who'd gotten spaces and were comfortably sitting on chairs they'd brought, but then the aisle quickly was filled with more and more people. I'm just glad nothing bad happened during the show.

It turned out that the Cincinnati Pops and the Cincinnati Ballet also were performing the FIRST HALF of the show. That meant with intermission we stood for two hours! Thankfully the new diet Kent and I began last week has improved our energy or else we wouldn't have made it through, and it was so worth being there, even with the crowd.

There's nothing else to say. The abridged video says far more than I can try to explain. (Forgive the tall guy in front on me who kept moving and getting his head in frame.)
