IngenuityFest is Moving to the Lakefront


We love IngenuityFest, the annual celebration of art, music, and technology. And we loved it over at the Detroit-Superior bridge, which although not the ideal location, provided a rich landscape with the lower level of the structure, the Cuyahoga River laconically meandering below, and a nice view of downtown. Before that, the fest also squatted at Public Square, E. 4th, and and Playhouse Square.

But we're going to love IngenuityFest even more at its new home this year: on the lakefront.

September 14-16 are the dates for 2012, and the locale will be docks 32 and 30, right over yonder by Browns Stadium and the Great Lakes Science Center. There will be outdoor and indoor spaces — two warehouses will provide 120,00 square-feet of exhibit areas — and the lake will be right there, which is pretty cool by all accounts. Hopefully someone can figure out how to get 17 animatronic dolphins to do some synchronized swimming in the water.
