After getting their Black Friday shopping done, thousands turned out to the National Harbor Lights Festival on Friday night to listen to holiday music and watch the National Harbor Christmas tree get lit.  The ceremony was nothing short of spectacular on a cool, crisp evening.

The evening started off with the Rappahannock Choral Society singing Christmas carols as people filed in.  The Radio King Orchestra, led by the vocals Robin Gordon, also went on stage and performed more Christmas carols and holiday classics.  The evening was capped off with the choreographed lighting of the 65’ tree and a fireworks show on the water.
