The five-day Tom Tom Founders Festival wrapped up in Charlottesville on Sunday evening.
This was the third year for the festival, which celebrates music, art and innovation in Charlottesville.
After the Belmont Bash, dozens of people kept the party going down the road at the at the IX property for a separate event.
That's where organizers hosted the "IX-ist" light show event at the site of a proposed art park.
Dancers, acrobats, aerialists and other performers entertained the crowd while a few food trucks provided something to snack on.
"It's like the circus came to town. I usually get excited when the circus comes to town," said show organizer Brian Wimer. "We have some DJs, there's a gypsy van here. It's a little taste of what some people know as Burning Man that we brought downtown."
Wimer launched a Kickstarter campaign earlier this month to transform the unused space into an art park.
He is hoping to secure $20,000 in funding by April 25. More than half of that has been raised so far.
