Symphony of Lights opened its gates to the holiday season's first revelers on Nov. 17. The annual light display that has become a Howard County tradition will be open nightly for the rest of the year, until Jan. 6, 2013.
This is the 19th year Howard County General Hospital is hosting the lights, which doubles as a fundraiser for the hospital.
