Shorter days mean less light, which is a good reason to visit the running path at the Charles River Esplanade. The lucy Light Forest celebrates movement and women athletes with an interactive display of 10,000 solar-powered, motion-sensitive LED lights.
Whether you're on foot, bike, or roller blades, the amber lights will react to your movements. During the exhibition, free yoga, Pilates, and other fitness classes will be offered. The event is presented by lucy.
