There was a standing-room-only crowd on hand for the closing reception to the month long DeLight Festival at the Hamilton Steam Museum on Woodward Avenue this past weekend. It was worth it.
The Hamilton Aerial Group provided a unique telling of Hamilton’s water history that was spellbinding. With intricate costumes, puppets, and recorded music, a narrator told the history as performers including stilt walkers provided a theatrical presentation.
Defining Movement Dance closed out the festivities with a series of performances by very capable students.
This year’s Delight Festival , Last Days of Ice And Snow, focused on the impermanence of ice and snow seasonally and climatically. The Festival is an annual event since 2016 (there was no festival in 2019) in Crown Point.
The event began with Chinese lanterns along the Pipeline Trail, followed by a waterfall of plastic bottles, and forest of plastic at Gage Park. This year the Festival returned to the Pipeline Trail with six exhibits, five by artists and one, crocheted snowflakes, by community members organized through Surprise!Hamilton.
