Luma Festival Friday
This past Friday was the Luma Projection Art Festival in downtown Binghamton. It is a free event that has been held the past few years showing 3D art and graphics on building facades in our city. Friday’s temperature was a little chilly but that didn’t stop thousands of people of all ages that came out and see the event.
My wife and I went with another couple, friends of ours, we made a night of it and went out for dinner and drinks first because Luma did not start until 9 p.m. We grabbed our free 3D glasses and headed down Court Street to the Court House lawn.
I thought two of the films were awesome. The one on the library on Exchange Street, and the one on The Grand Royal which was Super 3D. They also had one on the old Crawley building, which is a cool building to begin with, and that one was pretty neat as well. All in all it was a great event that does wonders for Downtown Binghamton. It’s also something else for people in our area to enjoy free of charge. And even though they were really cool, I don’t know if they’ll ever be able to top the first one many years ago. In my opinion, that was the best one yet.
Check out some photos from the event.
