From a press release:

“The Yards, DC’s most exciting waterfront neighborhood for living, dining, shopping and relaxing is ‘swinging’ into the holiday season with the seventh annual Light Yards!

This year’s holiday light installation, Swinging Bells, invites guests to become part of the artwork with interactive swings that animate the lights and amplify the cheerful sound of holiday bells. The five, 13-foot tall bells will illuminate The Yards’ Sun Deck and are the perfect stop for friends and family to take photos and get in the holiday spirit. Before making their way to Light Yards, guests can cozy up at one of The Yards’ 20+ restaurants and retailers for dinner, drinks or festive treats!

The installation was designed by Australian artist studio Amigo & Amigo who created last year’s popular Light Yards installation.

The festive fun doesn’t stop with Light Yards! Noon Yards, DC’s favorite family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration is also returning on Saturday, December 31. For more information on Light Yards, Noon Yards and other upcoming events at The Yards, visit!
