Lenin Lighting Kicks Off December’s Fremont Friday Art Walk

By Sean Keeley · November 24th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Would it be a traditional event in Fremont if we didn’t have our own spin on things? Everyone else can have their tree and menorah lightings, we’ll be lighting up our giant statue of a Russian dude, thank you very much. This year’s “Lenin Lighting” celebration is all set and ready to go for December 3rd:

Two of our local artists are creating a brand new light sculpture to adorn Lenin this year. Festivities run from 5-6pm in Lenin Square…we’ll have live music by Rabbit Stew String Band, and free refreshments such as Peet’s coffee and sweetened mint tea (for the kids), and Mighty-O Donuts! The neighborhood will welcome Santa bearing oranges for the kiddos, who then get to flip the switch to illuminate the statue around 5:30pm.

The lighting also kicks off the December Fremont First Friday Art Walk.  You can check out all the details of the event and the many venues involved here.
