If you haven't been to it, you should, it is a lot of fun. The people creating the various light displays are very creative. Plus there are bands playing and other entertainment. The only bad thing, is that sometimes they have problems with the technology and one or another of the displays won't be working for a while. Despite that, it is just a fun time.

I had a great time at Light City Baltimore exhibit. It's entertainment for the entire family. The display spans a few blocks with bright lights everywhere, so there's lots too see. There was live entertainment, as well as, your traditional carnival games and food. I wish the weather was better; however, it was still fascinating. My favorite parts were the light-up see saws and the light beams on the water that were controlled by movement. I would recommend the festival for family fun night. There's something to do for all ages.

I was so disappointed! Based on the media hype, I was expecting more lights throughput the harbor and more interactive exhibits. The kids were not impressed. Somebody dropped the ball on this one.

Went there at the start of BGE light city festival and the atmosphere was amazing. People coming with their kids and families. Lots of food options with spectacular light views. Multiple places on pier were decorated with lights and the concept was unique. There was a parade held at evening, lots of stages with DJs and live performances. Would recommend to go by public transport as getting a car or uber was next to impossible.
