Light Up Lakewood

December 2

Light Up Lakewood

It’s a most joyous of Lakewood traditions and it’s returning for an 11th year!  The spirit of the season will come to life with holiday cheer when Light Up Lakewood 2017 presented by First Federal Lakewood takes place on Saturday, December 2, within the city’s seasonally-illuminated downtown district.

Presented by LakewoodAlive in conjunction with many generous businesses and organizations, Light Up Lakewood celebrates the season and the richness of the city’s vibrancy.  This free, family-friendly event on Detroit Avenue features a holiday parade, lighting ceremony, winter fireworks, live music, ice carvings, hot chocolate, food trucks, children’s games and much more.

Attendees are invited to stroll Lakewood’s downtown district and visit local stores and restaurants while taking in the sights and sounds of one of Northeast Ohio’s largest holiday celebrations.  Light Up Lakewood serves as a marquee event for the entire region, having drawn an estimated 20,000 guests last year.

Highlights of Light Up Lakewood include Vendor Village, the ever-popular Holiday Parade, live entertainment provided by bands, choirs and dancers, the Lighting Ceremony and a can’t-miss fireworks show over the rooftops of Downtown Lakewood.  Guests’ sensory perceptions will be delighted by the twinkle of holiday lights, the cheerful sounds of carolers and the warmth exuded by the festive, friendly atmosphere.
