After another long school year, Wishes in the Wind is a soulful parade that captures the struggles and resilience of children. As they criss cross each other along a path carrying rocks emblazoned with words of worry and flags decorated with declarations of hope, this Grand Act gives us a glimpse into the hearts of young people while offering them a cathartic opportunity to connect, to express themselves, and to run free as we continue to navigate through this challenging moment together.
