Greenway Week Oct. 4 – 10 to Feature Dance Performances, Free Carousel Rides

In celebration of the Rose Kennedy Greenway’s tenth anniversary, the Greenway Conservancy will host “Greenway Week” October 4 through October 10.

One of the highlights of the week will be dance performances at the Rings Fountain. Choreographer Peter DiMuro and his company Public Displays of Motion will create a site-specific dance work, free and open to the public. Waterway/Lightway/Greenway will be performed by DiMuro’s ensemble with additional guest community dancers in and around the Rings Fountain on Saturday, October 5 at 1pm and 3pm, and Thursday, October 10 at 6:15pm. The piece is inspired by the history of The Greenway and will include a procession through the green space and dance in and around the Rings Fountain.

There will also be a food truck festival on Saturday, October 5, and free carousel rides on Thursday, October 10.

The Greenway chose “The Auto Show” as their 2019 public art exhibit theme, harkening back to the days when the Greenway was a major highway. Work currently featured includes a photo exhibit, car-themed artwork, new lights show at the Rings Fountain, and an augmented reality installation that allows visitors to see historic photos at different spots along the Greenway.
