Lulla-bikes at the Humboldt Park Lagoon

The Lulla-Bikes led the audience around the lagoon
to discover its mysterious scenes
Opera-Matic had a performance at Humboldt Park last week called New Moon On the Lagoon, featuring these "Lulla-Bikes" built at West Town Bikes, the Moon, a downed pilot, many flashlights, and a lit-up whale. The Moon snoozed and the audience sang it lullabies. Later the Moon sang back. 
Follow the Lulla-Bikes and the lullaby leader, and sing your way to each lost light station. At each station, the parade will join together to help each lost light find its way with a flashlight serenade. 
The performance made slightly more sense at the time, but the main event was a big walk around the lagoon led by lulla-bikes while singing and playing with flashlights. Some of us got pretty wet in the lagoon, too. 

If you get a chance to see Opera-Matic turning a public space near you into a community spectacle, it's worth a visit. Look at their upcoming events.

Hop! Hop! Hop!
Coquis in Humboldt PArk!
