55th Annual Pittsburgh Light Up Night
November 20 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Tonight’s 55th 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, Fireworks (Warhol Bridge, 9:38 p.m.), free horse-drawn carriage rides (Fourth Ave.), 6 – 9 p.m.), and several Santa appearances. There’s also top-notch local entertainment featuring Beauty Slap, Jeff Jimerson and Airborne, The Stickers, Nomad, MCG Jazz All Stars with guest vocalist Tania Grubbs and Dane Vannatter, Joe Grushecky and the Houserckers, and the Max Leake Trio.. The world-class Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be giving a free concert as part of RAD Days 2015 (Heinz Hall, 7:05 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.
