Light Up Louisville takes place Friday downtown. The annual festival includes a parade, the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree, and holiday games, crafts and concerts. Mayor Jerry Abramson says participants will also get a chance to make a donation to Toys for Tots and send holiday greetings to soldiers serving overseas.
“Outside Metro Hall, families will be able to sign a huge community greeting card to our troops and meet and thank a few of the soldiers currently serving in Iraq, from the Kentucky Army National Guard, who will be home on leave,” says Abramson.
The event will also include ‘Lou-minations’, an annual lights display that will take place at Metro Hall hourly through New Year’s Eve.
