The kick off for the holidays is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Join us on the Courthouse lawn from 6-6:30pm. Don’t be late, because this is the shortest event of the year! Have some Cocoa and and a cookie and help us count down from 10 to light the lights. Santa is on hand for the kids to visit and the local fire department swings by to drop hundreds of ping pong balls with specials on them for all to find. Not an easy feat, the balls are white and so is the snow, and did we mention it’s dark until we light the lights? We wrap things up by 6:30 so you can still make your dinner reservation. Light Up the Night is Sponsored by Steamboat Lightscapes. Each year, Steamboat lightscapes donates a lighted tree on the courthouse lawn and several trees downtown to keep Steamboat looking festive all winter.
