The gigantic fish, as translucent and whispery as a dream, wears an aquamarine mantle of scales on its tracing-paper skin. Temporarily speared on a bamboo pole, it waits for the person who will lift it high enough to glide through the currents of light above the wide green sea of Patterson Park. This sculpture is part of the graceful and glowing company of illuminations that will mark the Sixth Annual Halloween Lantern Parade, a community-created art spectacle in southeast Baltimore. As many as 1,000 people are expected to bring homemade lanterns to the park at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 to partake in this annual performance of art and movement -- an artistic collaboration between parade director Molly Ross and neighborhood residents.
