Celebrate the 2013 Parade of Lost Souls: Transition, Passing, Ceremony, and a return to the Source...
Spend the evening with photographer friends! It's definitely going to be a fun night out!
Our group will meet at the Courtyard, on the west side of Commercial Drive and Napier St., at 6:30pm -- and wait for 30 minutes for everyone to gather.
At 7pm, we will move slowly, somewhat in a group, toward the Britannia School Football Field where the festivities are headquartered.
At the Football Field, we will enter the gate, offer our $5 donation, and obtain information about the route of the Walk. We will slowly follow the crowd on the route and stop to photograph what we want.
IMPORTANT: We will NOT try to stay together for the entire walk, so, if you are alone and wish to have company during the walk, I strongly suggest that you arrive on time and make acquaintance with a few people and agree to stick together during the walk.
WHAT TO EXPECT: There will be lots to shoot during the evening... interesting art structures, lots of people dressed in costumes (both volunteers for the event and the public), music, and fire performances. The street lights cast a beautiful warm hue, and there will be lights along the way -- but plan for low light shots.
SAFETY: It will be very busy with many people, if you stick with the crowd (which includes families and children), then you will be VERY SAFE. Avoid leaving the crowd and heading down alleyways where there are no art structures or no other people.
UNOFFICIAL MEETING SPOT AT 9:30PM: We will undoubtedly split up during the walk. So, if you want to continue on with others at a pub or restaurant then the suggested meeting spot will be the BENCH on Commercial Drive at the SW corner of Commercial and Napier Street. Those who want to carry on can meet at this spot at 9:30pm, and decide with others what you want to do.
Dress very warmly and bring an umbrella in case it rains.
See you there! :)
