Tonight’s 54th Annual Light Up Night is the official kick off to Pittsburgh’s holiday season—even if some national retailers started the holiday season the day after Halloween. Highlights include several tree-lighting ceremonies, ice skating at PPG Plaza, Macy’s holiday window unveiling, Fireworks (Warhol Bridge, 9:38 p.m.), free horse-drawn carriage rides (Oxford Centre, 6 – 8:45 p.m.), and several Santa appearances. There’s also top-notch local entertainment featuring Michele Bensen, Roger Humphries and RH Factor, Sean Jones, Jeff Jimerson, Billy Price, Joe Grushecky, Donora, Max Leake Trio, and Spanky Wilson. The world-class Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be giving a free concert as part of RAD Days 2014 (Heinz Hall, 7 p.m.). Merriment and goodwill spontaneously occur all over the Golden Triangle. This is a holiday celebration not to miss. For a complete schedule, visit Downtown Pittsburgh for the Holidays. 5 – 10 p.m., Downtown
