There are a lot of events happening downtown for the first weekend of November.
For the first time, Baltimore’s celebrations of light and literature are happening at the same time.
Both Light City and the Baltimore Book Festival are well attended on their own, and organizers are expecting a big turnout at Brilliant Baltimore this weekend.
“We just went online looking for stuff to do, and it said that there was things happening by the harbor,” visitor Judy Nosworthy said.
Brilliant Baltimore, the first union of the two major festivals, got underway Friday.
“I think it’s a great idea. I think on their own, they’re pretty fun, but together, I think Light City builds on the book festival,” resident Daniel Korbin said.
