THE YARDS ANNOUNCES ITS 2017 LIGHT YARDS INSTALLATION

Two-Story Glowing, Interactive Spheres Will Illuminate The Yards for the Third Annual Light Yards Holiday Celebration

WHAT: Light Yards, the month-long holiday celebration of light at The Yards, is returning for its third year, featuring a NEW interactive light installation on the waterfront. Four spherical globes, ranging in size from 8 to 22 feet in diameter, will be featured with shadow theater technology projecting awe-inspiring holiday visuals. Each sphere will feature different interactive elements, such as a selfie globe – that allows participants to become part of the art – and globes that react to projected light.

After touring festivals around the world in Moscow, Brussels and Jerusalem, the internationally-travelled light installation, is making its way to D.C. at the The Yards. Adults and children alike are invited to visit the enormous glowing globes starting on opening night, Wednesday, November 29, through Monday, January 1 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Create an unforgettable holiday night out with family or friends by also visiting one of the many neighboring restaurants and retail shops that The Yards has to offer! #LightYards #TheYardsDC
