Greensboro Festival of Lights and Winterfest

Festivities in Greensboro this December have been a lot of fun!  I photographed Winterfest and the Festival of Lights, both are annual events in Greensboro

Greensboro Festival of Lights is a one night event, and this year occurred on December 2.   Crowded streets of antler-wearing civilians listened to live bands and enjoyed the numerous festivities. The main event is the lighting of the tree, which happens in the middle of the city and drew a large crowd.

Piedmont Winterfest takes place from mid November into mid January, and includes ice skating at Lebauer Park.  Enjoy skating in front of downtown Greensboro and other lights, including the hanging art piece ‘Where We First Met’.

I attended both of these events while collecting images for VisitNC, and used a Canon 5D Mark4 and my milky way lens in order to capture images in the low lighting.  This provided a fun challenge!
