Tonight in RVA: InLight in Shockoe along Canal Walk

From WTVR TV-6 ... this is a neat event going on in RVA tonight:
InLight Richmond is an annual public exhibition of interactive light-based art, large-format projections, sculpture and performances that will engage in the dynamic site.

InLight Richmond 2013 will be held on Friday, November 8, 2013 in downtown Shockoe along the Canal Walk from the Turning Basin to 17th Street. It runs one night only, from 7:30 p.m. to midnight. Each year the location of this roving festival changes.

The event kick-offs with a Community Lantern Parade at 7:30 p.m.

To participate in the Community Lantern Parade bring a lantern you’ve made at home, in one of 1708′s public workshops, or make one just before the parade kicks off InLight.

A crowd will gather just above the Canal Walk Turning Basin between Virginia St. and 14th St. where everyone will receive an LED candle for their lantern.

There will be food and beer trucks. Alchemy Coffee Cart, Boka Tako Truck, Sticky To Go-Go, RVA Vegan and Carytown Burger and Fries will be on site throughout the festival. Center of the Universe and Legend Brewery will have brews on site. See below for specials that neighborhood restaurants plan to offer.
