Are you thinking of coming to New York during the period from mid-November to early January?
If you answered YES, then in our article today we want to tell you about a beautiful Festival of Lights called Lumino City.
What are we talking about?
Lumino City is a beautiful festival where thousands of hand-crafted light-art sculptures will illuminate the holiday season with their breathtaking glow, and bring joy to all who share in its warmth.
The Lumi Experience
LuminoCity is much more than an outdoor display of light art. They aim to create multidimensional and immersive experiences that inspire curiosity, imagination, and new perspectives.
That’s why every year they explore the new possibility of art forms and innovatively create one-of-a-kind unique designs invoking the elements of online and offline, 2D and 3D, virtuality and reality, stories and imaginations.
Where is it?
For the first time this year Lumino City doubles: 2 locations.
The first one is in Vienna, VA. It’s a bit far from New York City (about 3 and a half hours by car) but for anyone already living in the US it can be a great option.
The second one, which is easier to get to for anyone visiting New York over the holiday season, is located just past Queens in Manhasset. It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get there by public transportation (subway plus bus) but it is absolutely worth it!
Alternatively, and this is a very convenient alternative in terms of time, you can take the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road): trains leave Penn Station, a few steps from Times Square, every 30 minutes and take you to the Manhasset stop: in about 30 minutes you arrive at your destination station and from there you can take a FREE shuttle bus that will take you to Lumino City.
How much do the tickets cost?
Admission tickets for adults cost $38 while for children between the ages of 2 and 12 it costs $27. There is also the possibility to buy VIP tickets for the price of $76.
One of our influencers will be attending the opening ceremony of Lumino City in New York on November 12th.
We’ll show you step by step how to get to the location using public transportation and take you on a virtual tour of the festival’s beautiful light creations.
