VIDEO: Night of Festivals hits town

The Night of Festivals came to Boston’s Central Park, with carnival parades through the town, on Saturday and Sunday.

In the video above is Samuel Javid programme manager for ArtReach, which worked with community based arts project Transported to put the event on.

Colourful carnival parades at the Night of Festivals event brightened up a grey and rainy weekend in Boston. Around 100 members of the local community took part as performers, artists and stewards.

The shadow puppet theatre show still managed to entertain both young and old at the Night of Festivals.

The crowd was kept dry at the show which was held under the cover of a large tent in Boston’s Central Park.
