Time Out says

An illuminated wonderland awaits you just 45 minutes outside of NYC! LuminoCity is back and it's taken over Whitney Pond Park on Long Island.

The immersive, outdoor holiday spectacular of light sculptures and art installations first touched down in 2019, and proved its place as a must-see light show in the city on Randall's Island.

Now on Long Island, visitors to the festival will take a 45-minute walking, narrative journey, with twinkling and towering LED sculptures along the way that will play to the overall theme of "Shine Again." The light art displays are inspired by the power and warmth of light overcoming the darkness and are a celebration of cultures and the world around us.

Lumi, the LuminoCity mascot, will guide the immersive outdoor event, which also includes the all-new "Lumi’s Utopia" and "Lumi’s Friends" exhibit. Lumi’s Utopia features artwork from six young artists. They were asked to illustrate 2D art designs of their favorite gifts and have been be brought to life as large 3D light-art sculptures.

For the upcoming holiday season, LuminoCity will run now through January 9. A limited number of tickets will be available for each designated time slot throughout the festival to keep to a strict capacity. Tickets must be purchased in advance online here. General admission tickets run $22 to $76.
