Photos: JP Lantern Parade at Jamaica Pond


Kids in Halloween costumes, funky live music, and brightly lit lanterns constructed of soda bottles all came together at the JP Lantern Parade this weekend.

The annual, two-day event, organized by Spontaneous Celebrations, is held on the shores of Jamaica Pond, and even chilly weather (and flurries on Sunday) couldn’t scare the crowds away.

See below for some Jamaica Plain News photos of the festivities.

    It was not
    such a good experience for me!! My daughter got bitten by a dog and the owner
    left without even asking how my daughter was and without providing her
    information to get the dog records in regards to vaccines. I ended up in children’s
    hospital and since we didn’t have the dogs records my 6 year old had to get the
    Rabies vaccine which were 3 shots that day and we will need to go back 3 more
    times within the next 2 weeks. It was quick, we were next to the food tables
    where they were selling bread and cookies, the dog barked and snapped at my daughter
    who had bread on her hand. My daughter started crying and was in panic. I
    focused on calming down my daughter and went I turn around the dog and the owner
    was not there anymore. I am just in shock and can’t believe this woman would
    leave. No sense of responsibility, and extremely insensitive. She was in her mid-30’s,
    blondish, and was wearing a red jacket. She had a small white dog. Most
    important I want all you residents be careful because this woman is in your neighborhood
    and around your children. I would love to find her to introduce my daughter and
    myself and explained how hard was this for us and how easy would have been if
    she would of provide her doc vaccine records. My email
