Wildwood shoots for the moon

‘LANTERNS!'
5:30 p.m., Wildwood Park for the Arts. $5-$10.

As if Wildwood wasn't picturesque enough to begin with, all weekend the park's celebrating the first full moon of the lunar year by turning the grounds into a nighttime Epcot. By navigating walking trails illuminated by fire pits and paper lanterns, visitors can stroll to Morocco for kabobs and fortunetellers, Venice for cognac at Carnivale, Shakespeare's England for ale and theater, and — this is really cool — the Moon for riddles and moon pies. A true outdoor spectacle and the picture of wholesome fun, “Lanterns!” is ripe for families, but fellas, if this isn't a perfect little happening for a date, I'll eat the keyboard I'm typing this on. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday. They close at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 9 p.m. on Sunday. Food and drink will be for sale inside the park. JT
