Light Up Louisville November 28

Santa Claus is coming to town, and he is going to light it up! The 2014 Light Up Louisville festivities, which have become a tradition for many of Louisville's families, have expanded to create an even bigger and better celebration of the kickoff of the holiday season. A parade, fireworks and the introduction of Forty Nights of Lights are all set to occur downtown starting at Fourth and Main Streets and running to Fourth Street Live! The parade begins at 6:30pm.

LOL Themed Parade and Festivities

Santa Claus will arrive in the parade via his own personal float, designed in 1945, officially marking Day One of the Forty Nights of Lights when he presents Mayor Greg Fischer with the "Magic Plug" necessary for the lighting of the city. The anticipation over placing it in the socket will be overcome by cheers as Louisville's holiday lights are illuminated.

There is something truly magical about a night parade and all of its light covered participants. Residents are encouraged to create award worthy, original entries and participate in the festive parade. This year's theme is LOL - Lots of Lights.

Forty Nights of Lights

A new addition to Louisville's holiday celebration is the Forty Nights of Lights show along the Fourth Street corridor. The tree and street lights will be synchronized to music and light projections are planned for the sides of the buildings along the street. Put a handful of peppermints in your pocket, fill your thermos full of hot cocoa and head downtown for this wonderful Louisville holiday tradition.
