The event kicks off the Riverfront’s “Light Up the Night,” a holiday tree display meant to shed some light on community-focused organizations and their missions during this winter. Beautiful honors have been sponsored by organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Transitions, Mobius Discovery Center, Alzheimer’s Association and many more! Booths providing information on these organizations will also be set up around the pavilion while lighting the tree for those interested.

This event also kicks off the Trail of Lights Return, a self-guided tour of great light shows along iconic landmarks like Balaz Fountain, Riverfront Blue Bridge, Clocktower, and more! The pavilion will also be lit on its LED light show every evening from sunset until 10pm until January 3rd, so you can add it to your list of dazzling shows to expect to see.
