BALTIMORE (WJZ) — For the 49th year, the Downtown Partnership hosted the lighting of the Washington Monument in Baltimore.

But unlike previous years, this year the lighting was virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic.

WJZ’s Holiday Spectacular brought the lighting to Marylanders from the comfort of their homes.

Morgan State Choir, Cal Ripken, Gayle King, Duff Goldman, Tony Award winner Andre De Shields and more were a part of the show.
