On Monday evening, I went with a group of friends to the 2008 Festival of Lights at the Washington D.C. Mormon Temple in Kensington, Maryland. This is the festival's 31st year and attracts visitor's from all across the region and up and down the Eastern Seaboard.
To find a Mormon Temple near you and learn if they have a festival of lights, visit this site. (The site itself won't tell you if there's a festival, but it will provide you with a phone number to call and find out.) If you enjoy night/low light photography and holiday lights and/or want to improve your skills, they're great venues for both.
To see a couple of pictures from last year's festival, go here. To view a few more pictures from this year's festival, click on the slideshow below.
