Light Up Louisville – November 27, 2009

Light Up Louisville ushers in the magic of the holiday season with lights, fireworks and music to transform downtown into a fantasy land aglow with the spirit of Christmas. It is a time when every child’s face is bright with excitement and every adult believes in Santa Claus.

Now in its 28th year, Light Up Louisville continues to add free activities and attractions that will bring more than 75,000 people downtown to Jef­ferson Square Park the day after Thanksgiving. Friends and families will gather to enjoy the colorful Holiday Parade with nearly 100 units and then may stroll through the Holi­day Market that features holiday craft and gift ven­dors, delicious foods and beverages of all kinds all while listening to the sounds of the season from Light Up’s 3 stages that offer free music and entertainment. Free family fun will be found in the Santa’s Workshop children’s area and, of course, Light Up would not be complete without a visit from ol’ St. Nick himself who will present the Mayor with a magic plug that will Light Up the city!

New This Year!

A new 5K run/walk to kick off this year’s Light Up Louisville activities. Called the “Run Run Rudolph 5K Run/Walk,” it is at 3 p.m. The 5K starts and ends on Jefferson Street between 5th and 6th and goes through down­town Louisville.

“Light Up Louisville brings families together like no other event in town and we are excited that Baptist Health is adding this Healthy Hometown activ­ity,” said Mayor Abramson. “The 5K will be a great way for families to get a good dose of exercise on the day after Thanksgiving.”

Fee to participate is $20 for adults; $10 for children under 12 and $25 for adults and $10 for children after November 23.
