Who will you see this year? (Bridge Street Town Centre)

Past Lights Up! events have featured visits from the Grinch, snow, live music and more. Here’s what you can expect at this year’s event:

  • Appearances from Santa + other holiday characters
  • Friday Flurries + photo ops
  • Live music from Big Daddy Kingfish
  • Performances from local choirs
  • Special giveaways

The event kicks off at 4:30PM and culminates at 7PM when Santa will assist in lighting Bridge Street’s 45-foot Christmas tree. Stick around though, because after the tree is lit, the light show begins.
