The drizzling rain did not stop a 49-year-old holiday tradition. An estimated 20,000 people attended Friday night's event.

Friday evening, students put out 3000 luminaries to light up Memorial Circle and set the mood for this year's Carol of Lights.

The festivities kicked off at 6:30 p.m. Friday night with a Carillon concert. The Masked Rider and a Light Procession followed.

More than 150 musicians took the steps of the science building to play and sing holiday favorites, such as Deck the Halls and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

At the grand finale, 13 buildings, a 50 foot Christmas tree and large holiday wreath on the Science building were lit. There are than 25,000 red, white and orange lights stretched across campus.

If you missed the event, you can drive by anytime through the holidays to see the light display.
