Christmas Lights Art Car Parade


Editorial Review

Ever want to cover your car in Christmas lights and a glowing Rudolph-style nose and drive it through the streets of Georgetown? Think it would be cool to have a snowman on your minivan's roof? Let your dreams become reality this weekend as Flying Dog Beer and Brightest Young Things host the first Christmas Lights Parade from Jack's Boathouse to Comet Ping Pong. Decorate your own car -- or, if you don't mind the cold, your bike -- as festively as you like.

The night starts with tailgating at Jack's at 7 (please bring a designated driver) and the procession down K Street to Rock Creek Parkway begins at 8. There will be a pit stop at Politics and Prose for a dramatic reading of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (with free Flying Dog beer for all attendees) before continuing down the block to Comet for live retro rock by Boston's Sidewalk Driver and disco-tinged R&B by D.C.'s own Sherell Rowe. It's all free, and there will be prizes for the best cars. If nothing else, it sounds like it should be a blast to watch.
