BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Organizers estimate as many as 100,000 people visited Light City opening night, and thousands more came out for the grand finale Saturday night.

Drone 13 hovered over a city transformed as the Inner Harbor lit up and filled up for the last night of Light City.

For more than a week, Light City electrified Baltimore, bringing the harbor to life with a celebration of art, sound, innovation and illumination.

“It’s great, and then with all the people and the happiness and everybody’s happy-go-lucky walking around,” Beverly Fabian said.

Walking or laying, if you visited “Solar Power/Solar System,” which gave visitors a clear look at the constellations over Baltimore.

“To see people react and really enjoy it makes it feel worthwhile. It’s been amazing,” artist Sam Sethi said.

From sky to sea, dozens of installations designed by artists from Baltimore and beyond drenched the city in light and one-of-a-kind art.

This year’s light city theme of “More love, more lights” delivered — bringing in more crowds than ever before.

“I think it’s amazing. I like coming down here to the Inner Harbor and enjoying all the atmosphere and all the people and stuff,” Shanna Coe said.

For one last night, a festival that brought in half a million dollars last year is showing visitors the good things happening in Charm City.

“I love everything at Light City because it’s so pretty,” one visitor said.

Taking in all that glows and glitters before it’s lights out on Light City 2018.

Many people who spoke to WJZ’s Devin Bartolotta said they’re already excited for next year and can’t wait to see what will light up Baltimore for 2019.
