See Light Up Louisville at Louisville Metro Hall November 23
See the lighting of the Christmas tree and get a peek at Santa the day after Thanksgiving during Light Up Louisville. This is a well-known city-wide event that’s kid-friendly and fun for people of all ages. Bundle up in warm clothing, and see downtown Louisville come to life with twinkling lights and holiday decorations in a truly magical event.
It’s free to attend Light Up Louisville, because this is an event for everyone. Mayor Greg Fischer will be here, but the real star of the show is Santa Claus, of course. The event begins at Louisville Metro Hall at 4 pm and lasts until 10 pm.
Light Up Louisville has been a part of the city for 38 years, and this is a favorite event for kids and adults alike. This is the official start of the winter holiday season, and there's a full day of activities planned. The children's activities begin at 4 pm. That's when the vendor booths open as well. There will also be free train rides at 5th and Jefferson Streets, and live entertainment on the main stage.
The Lots of Lights Parade begins at 6:30 pm. Mayor Fischer and Santa will officially light up the city and the city Christmas tree at Jefferson Square Park at 8 pm. Starting at 8:30, go to the Santa House to get a picture taken with Santa.
Metro Hall is at 527 W. Jefferson Street in downtown Louisville. That’s just blocks away from Old Louisville, a famous neighborhood that has earned its celebrity. Show up early, and take some extra time to see the beautiful homes here as they begin to get decked out for the holiday season.
Admiring Old Louisville
Old Louisville’s architecture draws tourists and locals alike who come to see the beautiful Victorian-era buildings, which look especially pretty at this time of year. The colorful Victorian homes built in brick and stone are even more charming with holiday decorations, surrounded by the lights of the city and the people headed downtown for shopping. Close your eyes, and you can imagine how it was over 100 years ago when carriages and women in big dresses walked these streets.
The homes here have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, along with lots of other great features inside. Old Louisville houses still have hardwood floors, chandeliers, big stone fireplaces with marble mantles and custom woodwork in molding and handmade carvings. There's also plenty of modern features for today's residents. Because Victorian architecture is great, but Victorian plumbing is not!
See great real estate and pretty lights this Louisville, and enjoy the city as it gets dressed in its holiday best.
