D.C. is glowing!

On cold dark nights this December, there’s still a good reason to be outside – D.C. has three great light installations that are free and run all month.

Georgetown GLOW

Georgetown GLOW, now in its 6th year, features eleven light installations scattered over several blocks and alleyways.

Light Yards

At Light Yards in Yards Park, there’s just one light installation to see, but it is really fantastic.

Kids and adults are excited to wander in and between the gaps in the huge structure, as it changes colors and emits other-worldly sounds.


ZooLights at the National Zoo is a perennial favorite, with the paths lit with thousands of lights and outlines of animals. This year there’s a great new feature – large 3-D animals glowing with light.

So as the ZooLights say on the path, Keep on Glowing!
