Come help us kick off St. John’s ChillFest with a Parade of Lights through Bowring Park.
Shake off those winter blues and join us for our inaugural night time parade.
Be sure to bring along a bright light or glow item to help light up the night. The parade is all about fun so feel free to bring a musical instrument, kazoo, noise makers or even dress in a funny costume. The Parade Master and a host of colorful characters will lead participants on a bright, fun and boisterous parade around the paved loop through the park. Participants will receive a cool blinky light.
Meet us at the Peter Pan Statue.
The Bowring Park Foundation was established on April 18, 1995, as a not-for-profit organization under the patronage of Derrick Bowring, a relative of Sir Edgar Bowring. Sir Edgar donated the park land to the City of St. John's in 1911 on behalf of Bowring Brothers Ltd. on their 100th anniversary of commerce in Newfoundland.
In cooperation with the City of St. John’s, The Bowring Park Foundation is a Citizens group formed to ensure, through active participation in restoration and future development projects, that Bowring Park is maintained and developed as a public park for quiet family enjoyment for the citizens of the region.
