Dance of the Fireflies: A Happening

  • 24 Below 24 Buffalo Ave Niagara Falls, NY, 14303 United States (map)

An amazing all night event surrounding dusk and the emergence of fireflies into the city. The event starts with creating glowing firefly projects at the gallery and then builds into the night's largest happening: the EMERGENCE of the FIREFLIES- as dancers in glowing costume take flight from the gallery in an orchestrated procession through the streets- all are invited to join the procession which will culminate in a choreographed Dance of the Fireflies. 

Costumes, models and make up directed by Mary Grace Ohrum. Art projects, dance and participation of procession directed by Danielle Grace-DePalma. 

This is the eclectic, bizarre, must see for yourself event that Niagara Falls has been waiting for. See it in it's very first year- the year that all others will build from. 

Be at the gallery by 7 for art projects; Be at the gallery by 9pm for the Procession and Dance of the Fireflies. 

Wear your own firefly, fairy, or light up costume and JOIN IN. 

This is a HAPPENING that you will be a part of.
