A special choreographed edition of Full Moon Jam Chicago was held at the Bean yesterday, September 21, 2019 in conjunction with Millennium Park’s theater series. It was a dream come true for the Full Moon Jam community, led by Mike LaHood, whose leadership came to an end with this spectacular event. (He is supposed to move to the West Coast according to a WBEZ interview.)
From the Full Moom Jam website:
“The Chicago Full Moon Jam began in 2004 with a group of friends coming together on the lakefront to celebrate a birthday with some fire spinning and drumming. Since then, it has grown into a time-honored celebration, bringing together a diverse community of performers, musicians and spectators from around the world. In 2016, the FMJ became an official partner of the Chicago Parks District, and are part of the Night Out in the Park series.”
I have been photographing the Full Moon Jam since the mid 2000’s. Last night’s sensational performance, entitled “Moonlight Parade” is the best showing so far and was the only jam I photographed this season. Have a look!
