Creek Show 2015 opens tonight!

Creek Show 2015 opens TONIGHT at sunset

Tonight the Waller Creek Conservancy kicks off 10 days of light-based art installations and events along Waller Creek. The installations, created by 5 fantastic local designers, will light up the creek from 5th to 8th Streets along Waller Creek. Creek Show is a way to celebrate Waller Creek and bring awareness to the future transformation coming to the creek, trails and surrounding parks. During Creek Show, everyone is invited to experience the creek in a safe, fun, family-friendly environment.

In addition to the on-going light installations, which are free and open to the public, there will be a number of special events during this special time including an Opening Night Party, Artist Talk and Family Night. Please see full calendar details below.
