Help Us Turn on Downtown's Holiday Cheer

Thursday, November 21 | 6 pm
Pere Marquette Park

It’s time to set downtown aglow! Join us for the city’s largest switch-flipping ceremony as we light three parks and downtown’s grandest thoroughfares. To get us in the spirit, we’ll pack the stage with music by Spider George & The Web and The Tempters; dancing by Studio VIA and Danceworks Youth Performance Company; skits from The Rep and First Stage; ice sculpting by Ice Beat Factory; and a visit from Santa, of course. Then we’ll illuminate the night with thousands of lights and a stunning fireworks display synchronized to your favorite holiday hits. The finale will spark just before 6:30 p.m.

Complimentary cocoa and cookies will be served throughout the program. Plus, after the show, free T-Mobile Jingle Bus rides will connect revelers to all the sights.
