BLUE LAPIS LIGHT PERFORMANCE:

There are two interactive art installations in place this year. One is inspired by Mary Poppins.

The Umbrella Sky Project, by a Portuguese artist, is new this year. Rows and rows of umbrella hang over a portion of the sidewalk near Gateway Center.

The piece in Point State Park is called “Tidal.” It was created by an artist from India.

“When you enter, there will be a canopy of clouds that are fiber glass and metal, which is handmade, and in the clouds are LED lights,” festival manager Sarah Aziz said.
