From a press release:
“WHAT: 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!
WHEN: Nightly from 6-10pm beginning on Friday, December 7th through Sunday, January 10th
WHERE: The Yards Park | 355 Water Street SE | Washington, DC 20003 Directions can be found here. The Yards is metro accessible via the Navy Yard Metro on the Green line and Capitol South Metro on the Orange/Blue line. Parking is also available on The Yards’ surface parking lots.
HOW: The Installation is FREE and open to all. All DC COVID protocols must be followed at Light Yards, including wearing masks and practicing social distancing.”
