A look at one of the installations at Friday night's Aurora in the Dallas Arts District.

You'll definitely want to check out this video of Friday night's Aurora, a festival that bathed the Dallas Arts District in bright light and attracted about 30,000 folks.

The exhibition included lights, computer images, video projections and performances that took over buildings, inside and out (and on the sides of buildings, too.)  About 90 artists participated. Organizers hope to make it an annual event.

KERA's Dane Walters shot and edited the video. KERA's Jerome Weeks attended and offers his thoughts.

OK, onto the video:
