Holiday Season Kick-Off: Annual Pittsburgh Light Up Night

As the holiday nears I am planning all the activities that my family and I can do together to enjoy this time of year. There are many events to go to in Pittsburgh, but one of the most exciting events occurs right before Thanksgiving this year. If you have family and friends traveling in for the holiday this is a great way to show them the city in get into the holiday spirit.

November always marks the beginning of the holiday season in Pittsburgh. On November 22, Pittsburgh will hold the 53rd annual Light Up Night. This is when the city is full of holiday decorations and they host the lighting of the tree downtown. It is such a magical experience.

The city expects to have hundreds of thousands of people show up over the weekend to attend the festivities. We attended the Pittsburgh Light Up Night a few years ago and had an awesome time. Not only does it get you into the holiday spirit but it is a family-fun event.

Local businesses participate in the activities and there will be 8 tree lighting ceremonies throughout the weekend. Here are some of the events you can expect this holiday season:

  • Santa and his live reindeer
  • Horse Drawn Carriage Rides
  • Live Music
  • Ice Carvings
  • Children’s Activities
  • Macy’s unveiling of their holiday window displays
  • Fireworks

I highly recommend attending these events if you can plan time during the Thanksgiving weekend. Find out more about the Pittsburgh Light Up Night events and details.
