Bike ride to light show and concert at Dorothea Dix Park
Join Oaks and Spokes and the City of Raleigh for a community bike ride to the light show and electronic concert at Dorothea Dix Park.
The interactive art installation features 384 neon light tubes hanging from the park's trees. Each light is connected to a theremin — an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact — allowing artists to perform songs and musical interpretations that will "Light The Woods with Sound."
The Oaks and Spokes crew will meet at the Market Plaza video wall to deck their bikes out in glow sticks, then ride two miles to the show.
When: Saturday, May 26, 7-10 p.m.
Where: Meet at the Market Plaza video wall, 227 Fayetteville St.
