Thank you to everyone who came out for the 42nd Annual Candlelight Tour!
Have you never been on a Candlelight Tour and wonder what it is all about? Be sure to read the Baltimore Sun/Aegis article from the 2014 tour and learn all about it.
We hope to see you all next year for the 43rd Candlelight Tour on Saturday, December 12th, 2015 from 4-8 PM.
The Story of the Luminaries
The luminaries that turn Union Avenue into a spectacular setting on the second weekend of December have become an integral part of The Candlelight Tour. Even though the weather has interfered in some years, the luminaries normally are lit during the hours of the tour.
But did you ever wonder how they appear? Who could possibly prepare and set up over 2,000 small bags, with sand and a candle -- and then light them all? And then have them all magically disappear by 9pm? Could it be Santa? Or maybe his elves and their helpers? Well, if you picked the last option, you'd be correct. And this year, we were lucky enough to catch them on the job and get their names so we want to recognize each and every one of them:
Bill Martin (Head Elf)
A huge THANK YOU to all of them for helping to make the Candlelight Tour and Christmas Boutique even more special!!!
