Coming up next with the East Lake Arts District will be:
The East Lake Arts District invites you to the third annual storytelling and memorial for our very own resident ghost known as the Child of the Lake at East Lake Park, Sunday, December 1, 2013 from 3:00pm until 5:00pm. The date has been changed due to scheduling conflicts and now coincides with 125th anniversary of May's discovery in East Lake Park.
Story telling of the murder of little May Hawes will be told by her notorious "mother" Emma Hawes, as portrayed by Karen Lynn Scott in period dress from the Oak Hill Memorial Association.
The vignette will be told in multiple intervals and will culminate when guests to the event will release flowers into the lake at dusk. (If things go like 2011, all the flowers drifted with the current of the lake...except for one which appears to drift against the current. Could that have been little May Hawes???)
Find us set up near the entrance to the pier leading to the gazebo in the south central area of the park. If we are lucky we may have a sighting of May Hawes at dusk since she is said to swim close to Larius Island which is in the near middle of the lake.
Flowers will be available to guests for a donation, which will go to Oak Hill Cemetery for the May Hawes marker fund.
The East Lake Park is located at 1st Avenue North between 83rd and 85th Streets North. Closest access to the park and the event will be off 1st Ave North near the I-59S access.
