The streets were bright with art and performances at this year's Afterglow arts festival on September 30 as artists, dancers and other performers took to Bridgewater to showcase their talents.

Visitors wandered from show to show and building to building, as various projects and installations lined King Street from Victoria Road to Dufferin Street.
