Yesterday I read a post by Todd Clark, Decided to take a tour of the Salt Lake Temple and wow, amazing! (A photo tour) and it reminded me that I had promised my family to do some research about the Festival of Lights show at the Washington D.C.Temple. The temple, which is visible from the Capital Beltway in Kennsington, MD, is known throughout the region for its majestic presence set above a curve in the, otherwise tedious I-495. Thinking that other families might want to go see this special event, I am providing the details below:  33rd Annual Festival of LightsWashington D.C. Temple Visitors' Center10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Friday, 3 December 2010 - Saturday, 1 January 2011 Lights are illuminated at dusk.During the month of December, thousands of lights illuminate the Washington D.C.
