If you haven't yet visited Light Yards 2017, you'll want to head on down to this popular DC attraction sometime before the year ends. This holiday light display is centered on a series of huge, 2-story globes, onto which holiday scenes are projected.
Join the enthusiastic crowds as they "ooh" and "ahh" over the dancing and flickering images, and if you're feeling festive you can even get directly involved with the installation's interactive elements. Shine a light at the globes to redirect the movements of the characters inside, or place yourself directly into the projected scenes at the "selfie globe," which will allow you to add your own smiling face to the projected images. The light show is open nightly from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., so it's easy to pair a visit to this unique event with dinner or drinks at one of the many restaurants at The Yards.
