CINCINNATI - The first night of LumenoCity in Washington Park was so popular organizers made adjustments to accommodate the crowd for Sunday night's final show.
And it's fortunate they did because Sunday's crowd was even bigger.
An estimated 20,000 people saw the music and light spectacular Sunday.
Chris Pinelo, vice president of communications with the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra, reported Saturday night's crowd was between 12,000 and 15,000.
"It is definitely more than what we expected," Pinelo said. "We'd thought that maybe we'd get 10,000."
On Sunday, the LumenoCity performance began at 8:30 p.m. with the Cincinnati Pops and the Cincinnati Ballet, followed by the symphony that provided the soundtrack to the LumenoCity light spectacle on the facade of Music Hall.
In order to accommodate the bigger turnout, Cincinnati shut down Elm Street around Music Hall at 8 p.m. and 14th Street between Elm and Race at 1 p.m. so more people could watch the show, Pinelo reported.
"(The closure) adds much more space to enjoy the concert and light show," he said.
In addition, more portable toilets were placed in the area around the park.
Ten projectors that span a city block were used to produce the light show. WCPO Digital Reporter Matt Peiken captured a Friday rehearsal of LumenoCity that highlights some of the flavor of the event.
Free parking and a shuttle service, underwritten by GBBN, were provided Sunday evening beginning at 6:30 p.m. from the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal to Washington Park.
Food trucks were available in the Emanuel Community Center parking lot on Race Street across from Washington Park.
