Right, so... Light Up Night is an annual tradition in Pittsburgh that kicks off the official holiday season in the area. Throughout the day, there are tree lighting ceremonies all across downtown Pittsburgh. This year, BNY Mellon is sponsoring the lights display at Market Square, as well as the fireworks. Things you might want to take note of are below. Feel free to pop by downtown and take in the holiday spirit.

I'm not sure if folks would like to meet up and check some things out, but I'm planning on being at Market Square for the lighting of the Season of Lights display. Someone from BNY Mellon will be flipping the switch and it might be me. Smile
