GLOW Eindhoven

For those of you living in or around the Eindhoven area, GLOW is back!!!  GLOW is a huge event that combines light & art, there are displays throughout the center of town.  Displays range from actual pieces you can interact with to projections on towering buildings.  If you can find time to visit, GLOW runs November 9th-16th from 6:30PM-11PM.
 
We made out first attempt to visit on opening night with our family.  Our big mistake was arriving 45min early!  It was pouring with rain, we had 3 kids ranging from 4-12 yrs old with us, and it was freezing.  Some of the displays were delayed because of the rain and we just couldn't bare the weather conditions any longer and headed back home.  Luckily we have the rest of the week to get back out after sunset to take in the spectacular views.
 
Last year we participated in GLOW off. which was a fun way of unofficially joining in the event.  We projected a film of our silhouettes on the window of our apartment (center of town) and voil√°, we had our on display.  And apparently this year our film has made it to GLOW off. again, and can be viewed at the Cultureel Buurtcentrum on Oranjestraat (not part of the official route, but close by)!
 
Once I actually get to the route & our entry, I'll be sure to snap a lot of pics and post them back here for you to enjoy!

Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste!
