BROOKLYN — Art enthusiasts turned out en masse Saturday for the second day of the DUMBO Arts Festival.
Brooklyn Bridge Park and the low-lying neighborhood's streets were filled with people as children tackled craft projects, hungry visitors ordered from food trucks and weekenders enjoyed the sunny views and costumed revelers mingled with the crowds along a Water Street corridor.
In the past, the festival has drawn around 200,000 visitors, organizers said, with the help of over 400 participating artists. This year, revelers could browse outdoor and indoor art installations, view large scale visual projections, visit artists in their studios, and watch dance and poetry performances.
The festival ends Sunday at 6:00 p.m.
