Pittsburgh officially begins the winter holiday season on Friday, Nov. 16 with Light Up Night, the 52nd annual celebration that fills downtown’s Golden Triangle with music, lights, Santa, ice skating and – starting Nov. 24– a European-style Christmas market in Market Square. (Full schedule and links for more information below.)
Event organizer the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership estimates last year’s event attracted more than 800,000 visitors and generated $21 million in economic impact.
Many of Pittsburgh’s traditional holiday offerings underscore the region’s commitment to sustainability in many forms. You can learn more by checking out the stories and videos from Five Golden Things, which highlighted such outings for the 2011-2012 season.
