Packing Up After Binghamton’s Big LUMA Projection Arts Festival
Downtown Binghamton is returning to normal following two nights of big crowds who viewed an array of projected features in the LUMA Festival.
Thousands of people watched the images displayed on several buildings, including City Hall and the historic Carnegie Library on Friday and Saturday nights.
Sections of many center city streets were closed for a couple of days ahead of the festival while equipment was projection and sound equipment was set up.
Once the festival concluded early Sunday morning, it was time to remove all the gear and tear down the special coverings that had been placed on the buildings.
Large sheets of white paper that hid windows on some of downtown's historic buildings were being removed on Monday.
The first LUMA Festival was held in August 2015. It's become an annual event, although it did not take place last year because of the Covid pandemic.
