38th Annual Lighting of the Washington Monument

image by spike55151

Mark it on your calendar! Thursday, December 3, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Grab a cup of hot chocolate or a coffee while you are there and witness Baltimore's Monumental Occasion with a new twist! This year the city is going green with energy-saving LED lights replacing old-fashioned bulbs on the Monument.

I love attending the monument lighting. The local school choirs and bands are pretty entertaining and they lead up to a very exciting grand finale. This city never disappoints with fireworks displays, and this event really something to see. When watching this display, it almost seems for a split second like the Washington Monument is turning into a rocket getting ready to launch!

It's a really a fun thing to experience -definitely not to be missed!

And if you're coming with kids, be sure to come visit us at the Walters before or after the lighting--- we always have a great art activity for the family and apple cider & more! Make a whole evening of it.
