A FREE Family Celebration of the Autumnal Equinox
Along the Charles River in Cambridge, MA
Map and Directions
It was a magical night of music, song and celebration as Revels welcomed the Autumnal Equinox along the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge.
This year marked Revels RiverSing's 10th anniversary and included 5pm pre-show festivities in Harvard Square followed by a puppet-filled parade to the Charles. Once the parade arrived at the Weeks Footbridge (at Dewolfe and Mem Drive) there was singing, poetry and more.
Helping us celebrate this year was special guest Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary plus The RiverSing Chorus of adults and children, sax great Stan Strickland, The RiverSing Ramblers, Paula Plum and Richard Snee from Actors' Shakespeare Project, David Coffin and other wonderful soloists, Cambridge Poet Populist Lo Galluccio, Marytha Paffrath and Sue Robbins of Libana, acrobats and street performers from Moonship Productions, Sara Peatie's Puppeteers Cooperative, Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, and the larger-than-life butterflies of Gabriel Q.
Schedule for the day
