Charm City Lights, Appealing to Cars and Suburbanites, Irks a Baltimore Parks and Youth Advocate

This week Baltimore rolled out “Charm City Lights,” a city-sponsored, drive-through, holiday light display in Druid Hill Park that will run through January 1 and cost $10 a car.

Maybe I’m being a Grinch, but I’m failing to see what is so “charming” about this taxpayer-funded expenditure.

How does it benefit city residents when 42% of the people living near the park (and 29% citywide) don’t have access to a car?
