Raw: 50th Washington Monument lighting

A beloved Baltimore holiday tradition is back. The lighting of the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon kicked off Thursday night with a spectacular show. The event and the monument did not look the same last year, but it's back in its glory. And what makes it more spectacular now, is that this same space was empty in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic put a pause to celebrations, but now it's back, marking the return of the holiday spirit right in Baltimore with holiday lights and fireworks.
