Downtown’s Light Up Night #49

It’s getting to be the Holiday Season again which means this Friday night is Downtown’s 49th annual Light Up night! Visiting Macy’s (Kaufmann’s) holiday window displays,  downtown holiday shopping and Santa’s arrival are 3 things I remember from my childhood that always made the season complete. This Friday night kicks off with tons of events from music by Etta Cox and more, LuminoCITY LED art installation, the lighting of the Holiday Tree, fireworks, Santa’s arrival and much more!

Here’s a sampling of some of the events downtown, but check out for the complete 2009 schedule. And don’t forget to check out the other events at Station Square and more.
