Photo Opportunity Light City, Baltimore Light City website
"Light City is a free festival of light, music and innovation. Light City reimagines the waterfront into a premier cultural destination: fully accessible, free and open to all. Located along the Inner Harbor’s brick-lined promenade, the BGE Light Art Walk features awe-inspiring art installations, performances, concerts, a fun-filled family zone and special moments including an Opening Night Parade and a Closing Night fireworks finale. The festival’s food and beverage offerings are proudly 100% local, reflecting Baltimore’s burgeoning cuisine scene."

A field trip will probably be planned, as we have gone the past 2 years. This is a fantastic opportunity to try out night-time photography, street photography, long exposures, and abstract photography.
