Rosslyn lighting up

Excitement is building and lights are already starting to sparkle in anticipation of tomorrow night's annual Light Up Rosslyn Ceremony.   NewsChannel 8 Meteorologist Devon Lucie will host the ceremony under the WJLA Jumbotron in downtown Rosslyn at the corner of N. Lynn St. and Wilson Blvd.  Local Rosslyn celebrities will flip a switch that will turn on festive roof-top lights on nearly 40 buildings in Rosslyn.  The event, which runs from 5:15pm to 6:30pm, will also feature complimentary chili, cider, cookies, and live music. Hum along as music groups Beltway Brass and Snowday perform holiday tunes.
To make this event even more special, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District is sponsoring a specially commissioned W3FI projection on Artisphere's dome.  W3FI, "a digital experience revealing the connections between our online + offline selves," is opening this very same night in Artisphere's Terrace Gallery.  The free opening reception at Artisphere will run from 7-10pm.  Get thee S3LF to this illuminating set of happenings!
