The planning for Light City 2016 has been in the works for many months, and as the curtains open so to speak, it is my sincere hope that Baltimore will rise to the occasion. To our police, let's ensure the safety of all guests, day or night, by organizing properly and remaining vigilant. To my fellow citizens, keep the downtown area clean and attractive for everyone involved. Let's buy local, often, and provide a real economic impact to area businesses. The ceiling for this sort of event is very high as long as everyone plays their part. We remain One Baltimore.
