Symphony of Lights Festivities

Symphony of Lights

2015 Symphony of Lights Postponed

Symphony of Lights

Howard County General Hospital and the Howard Hospital Foundation thank all of you who have volunteered, participated or sponsored Symphony of Lights over the past 21 years. Symphony of Lights festivities will be postponed until fall 2016 to allow for the redevelopment of Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods in Columbia, Md.

This includes all events:

  • Dazzle Dash
  • Twinkling Tots
  • Bike the Lights
  • Tail Lights
  • Nightly drive throughs
  • Group walk throughs
  • Midnight at 7

Symphony of Lights Video
In lieu of the traditional light display this year, we invite you to enjoy a video drive through of the Symphony of Lights.

Those who have attended Symphony of Lights festivities in the past are encouraged to share their photos and experiences on the Symphony of Lights Facebook page and “like” us on Facebook so that we can send you the details of next year’s events.

While Symphony of Lights is paused this year, the light displays, many of which are original and more than 21 years old, will be refurbished and updated so that when we return in 2016, Symphony of Lights will be brighter and better than ever. Throughout this next year, the 250,000 bulbs on the displays also will be replaced with environmentally friendly and more cost-effective LED lights.

If you are interested in supporting the refurbishment of the Symphony of Lights display and the hospital this holiday season, you can sponsor a new LED light bulb for a donation of $10 through our Brighten the Lights campaign. Donations can be made in honor or in memory of loved ones. Those supporting this campaign at a level of $100 or more will be recognized on the hospital’s website.

Best wishes to you and your family this holiday season. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Symphony of Lights festivities!
