There’s still time to make McDaniel part of your holiday celebration this year. Join the more than 520 cars-full of visitors who enjoyed the College's light show synchronized to music at the stadium — and take in a concert or two.

• As part of McDaniel College’s 150th anniversary celebration, the College hosts a drive-in light display that is synchronized to music throughout the holiday season, Thurs.–Sun., 5–9:30 p.m., through Dec. 31, at the College's Kenneth R. Gill Stadium. The inaugural Holiday Light Show is free and open to the public.
