There are several reasons why you shouldn't miss a thing at the Dumbo Arts Festival: the work of 500 international artists will be displayed, using streets, parks, buildings, waterfronts and the sky as canvasses; a video projection on the Manhattan Bridge; a floating sculptural garden; and the pièce de résistance: an exhibit that lets you be a superhero. The interactive display will be projected onto a building, and allow you to fly, shoot light beams, grow in size, and more. If that's not enough to get you going, you must hate fun.
