October 18, 2013 - October 19, 2013 - CONFIRMED!
From Autumn Lights Festival Website:
Imagine several acres of garden illuminated with weird and enchanting art installations created by local Bay Area artists.
Electric fireflies flickering in the trees, glowing waterfalls, a flock of interactive books, a Polynesian Paradise with hand-crafted tiki lanterns and hula girls projected on palm trees, fire art cars and live fire performers light the night. Music and sound installations surprise at every turn on the garden paths lit with hundreds of luminarias. Attendees are invited to participate during the evening by coming dressed in their most interesting illuminated garden attire.
A fundraiser for Oakland's hidden jewel, recently named one of California's Top 5 Gardens by VIA Magazine, The Gardens at Lake Merritt are located in the heart of Oakland in Lakeside Park at 666 Bellevue Ave. Funds will be used for Garden improvements for the enjoyment of the entire community.
