Holiday Window Displays at Promenade Park

Through January 3

Get a small glimpse of daily winter life at Promenade Park through our handmade paper cut light boxes. Paper cut light boxes are believed to have originated from China after paper was first invented. Many countries picked up the skill, but Switzerland remains the enduring leader referring to the art form as Scherenschnitt. The light boxes will be displayed in the windows of the Park Foundation Pavilion at Promenade Park from November 24 to January 3 and can be best viewed at dusk. Go to to vote for Riverfront Fort Wayne!
