Physical activity & movement

Inspired by all things that glow and the Fresh Prince, we present ALLEZ HOP, a pop-up, glow-in-the-dark basketball court. Think beautiful neon pink and the blue joy of the early 90’s, think uncannily old tunes and the swoosh of a net. As part of Illuminate the Night, we create a space for all to shoot hoops, play 3-on-3, spectate, chat, dance, and celebrate.

This event is free.
