Holiday lights and a brightly lit Christmas Tree will adorn Metro Hall and its lawn. The festive light display will include a rainbow of colors to celebrate Christmas, along with holiday-themed gobo lights celebrating Kwanza, Hanukah and all of the seasons special days that seek to reflect the diversity of our community. Mayor Fischer is also encouraging residents and businesses to put up their own rainbow of colors at their homes and workplaces to Light Up Louisville’s neighborhoods.
Here Comes Santa Claus Christmas Convoy!
Santa can’t invite all of his friends to join him downtown for the annual Light Up countdown due to Social Distancing guidelines. Santa, along with his elves from all over the world, will be very busy at the North Pole making holiday presents, but he still wants to make sure all of the children in the Louisville area get a chance to send him their Christmas wishes. He has asked two of his very best Santa Helpers to come to Louisville and visit neighborhoods across the city to help spread holiday cheer!
In partnership with LG&E, 106.9 Play FM, AT&T and Neil Huffman Subaru, a mobile Santa Claus Convoy will visit more than 20 Kentuckiana neighborhoods, selected through nominations from our citizens on Nov. 27-28 and Dec. 5, 12 and 19.
Frosty the Snowman and some of Santa’s elves will join in – wearing masks, of course – to accept letters to be placed in Santa’s Mailbox. Christmas music will be playing, and a mobile video screen will play highlights from previous Light Up Louisville events as Santa’s convoy drives through Louisville’s neighborhoods. Neighbors will also be invited to donate a new, unwrapped toy for the annual Toys for Tots drive.
Thanks to our sponsors!!!
Mayor Greg Fischer is challenging Louisville residents and businesses to help beat last year's record of more than 5,000 toys collected in a 12 hour period!
Other drop-off points include Paristown Point, Mission BBQ and the PRP Fire Department stations.
