Light Yards is back for its 5th year with ‘Stars’

Back for its 5th year, Light Yards at The Yards Park provides a fun and socially-distant way to celebrate the holiday season during a time when many celebrations and events are not possible.

The annual holiday installation features 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 opens today, Dec. 7 and be illuminated nightly from 6 to 10 p.m. at The Yards Park through, Sunday, Jan. 10. 

To add to the festive installation, many of the restaurants in The Yards neighborhood are offering seasonal specials. The Yards Park is metro accessible via the Navy Yard Metro on the Green line and Capitol South Metro on the Orange/Blue line.
