BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The region’s longest-running holiday tradition took place Thursday night. In Mount Vernon Place, the Washington Monument in Baltimore is now lit up for the holidays.
The 46th Annual Downtown Partnership of Baltimore Monument Lighting continued a longtime tradition that attracts thousands.
The lighting featured a holiday village, live performances, and a fireworks display.
Things quickly heated up once R&B superstars and Baltimore’s own Dru Hill took the stage performing for the first time a single off their upcoming holiday album.
Because of road closures and the fireworks safety zone, people were asked to enter Mount Vernon Place’s West Square from Cathedral Street, not from the Charles Street area.
