OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - The $1.4 million dollar production of lights and music is still more than two months away, but time is running out to get a ticket for Lumenocity.

Registration for the Aug. 5-9 show at Washington Park closes at 10 p.m. Saturday.

When you register, that doesn't guarantee you a ticket to see the show. You have to wait  until May 29 to find out if you've been selected. Then you can purchase your tickets.

This year, Lumenocity is a paid ticketed event. It's not free like previous years. The cost is $15 to $20 per ticket.

Officials with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra blame the admission charge on a fundraising gap. The non-profit organization wasn't able to raise enough money through sponsors and grants to cover the cost of the show. 

Another big change is how many people can watch each performance. Crowd capacity was down by more than half this year.

Last year, the event drew about 12,500 fans  for each performance.

This year they are only allowing 6,000 people nightly for public safety reasons.

Organizers added a performance this year to make up for reducing capacity.

There's a four ticket limit for performances, which are first-come, first-serve depending on availability.
