Since this was my second consecutive day at Luminaria, I decided to spend more time focusing on the multiple musical performances which seemed to be tucked away in every nook and cranny. There was no shortage of genres – everything from folk, to Tex-Mex country, to ’90s style rock and Tejano were all represented. It also seemed as though the Rolling Thunder Pinball secret’s out: The lines of people are the proof. It feels like Luminaria has diversified itself from an adult art party to a family-friendly gathering, but with the same artistic roots it has had in the past. My recommendation is to replace a couple food trucks allowing more artists to contribute work on a smaller scale.  See you next year, Luminaria. It’s been enlightening.
