Aurora, the dazzling display  of light and the arts, returns to  Downtown

When Aurora first shone its way into the Arts District two years ago, the one-night-only event ended up being one of the defining moments in the neighborhood’s history and really helped cement Downtown as a place where things happen after the businessmen exit the skyscrapers. Now it’s back for an encore.

The light, sound and performance display, which also includes 80 participating artists from across the country, turns the AT&T Performing Arts Center into an open-air urban playground. On Oct. 16 from 7 p.m.–2 a.m., the event takes over 19 city blocks and will attract 30,000-plus attendees to see performances from the Dallas Museum of Art to the Crow Collection of Asian Art to the Winspear Opera House and everywhere in between. And it’s free … though you can purchase VIP access to a lounge, DJ and after-party (or just the after-party alone).
