Lighting of the Washington Monument

A great event I have done for years to bring in the Holiday Season! Come out for a wonderful evening of music and festivities Baltimore Style to lighten your week and heart and get the Christmas Season started with a BANG! Writeup is here:

http://bop.org/index.cfm?page=events&id=14

So let's meet at the Dunkin Donuts on the corner of Centre St. and Guilford Ave. at 5:30 PM and walk up to Mt. Vernon Square and bring in the Holiday Season with Good Cheer and Goodwill with friends old and new! Note: the Walters Art Gallery is very close so if you have the afternoon free you can enjoy that as well. This is a "kid friendly" event but there will be a big crowd. Wear warm clothes and shoes or boots to keep your feet warm or you will get cold. I sometimes go to Vaccarro's in Little Italy afterwards, so that is an option as well. Happy Holidays everyone and hope you can enjoy us for a wonderful evening ending with fireworks! Give me a call on my cell at[masked] if you need to contact me, but it is nearly impossible to hear a cell phone in the crowd as everyone is having so much fun!

    Hope everyone got to enjoy the show as I did not have anyone's cell number outside of Harriet. Another great Event and I enjoyed the Dancing Santa's, but had to leave before the fireworks. I-83 South traffic from Parkton kept me from getting there until 7:00 PM (on the road since 3:45 PM) and I had to leave at 7:20 for the Dave Koz Concert at the Lyric. Hope everyone had a "blast" and look forward to actually getting to meet you next year!

    Where is the best place to park for this event?

    • Jim N.

      Posted above Dave. If you can get there a little after 5 PM on street parking is best, but will still have to pay I believe.

      520 Park Ave. Some pay 7, some cheat because they don't check.
