Festival Details - "Light Yards"...
The Yards, DC’s most exciting waterfront neighborhood for living, dining, shopping and
relaxing, is bringing back Light Yards for its fifth year at The Yards Park! While this year has looked very different, Light Yards will continue its tradition as an opportunity to safely celebrate the holidays in a fun and socially-distant way during a time when many holiday traditions and events are not possible.
The annual holiday installation will feature the premiere of the installation “Stars” by Australian-based immersive light design sculptors Amigo & Amigo. The larger-than-life stars constructed from metallic mesh feature dancing lights and play festive music, making for a perfect socially-distanced stroll for guests of all ages who want to safely experience some holiday cheer. This free-to-all installation will begin on December 7th and be illuminated nightly from 6-10pm at The Yards.
Whether you’re enjoying romantic cocktails or dinner al fresco with friends amongst the Stars, or enjoying the installation with young ones before picking up dinner to go, Light Yards and The Yards restaurants can create special holiday moments even during these strange times. In the coming weeks, restaurants will announce seasonal specials to pair with Light Yards!
