A young holiday tradition is back for another round in Park County. The Explore Livingston Coalition has announced the return of its community event to commemorate the season with the Light Up Livingston celebration to be held on Saturday, November 25th from 4–7pm in Depot Park. Admission is free to the public, but purchase of food and drink by local vendors is encouraged. Downtown shops will also be open for holiday shopping opportunities during the event.
Teaming with nonprofit the Holiday Lights Committee and local donors, park trees will be adorned with more than 100,000 lights that will remain on display through the new year. Similarly, the downtown strip will be illuminated with light pole snowflake lights to enhance the experience for shoppers and socializers. This holiday gathering is intended to complement beloved events including the Holiday Stroll, Polar Express viewing, Holiday Market and Craft Fairs, and other Livingston classics.
Light Up Livingston will feature family fun including caroling, candy cane and holiday scavenger hunts, hayrides, faces-in-holes Christmas rail photo board, and beloved holiday characters like Elsa, Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman for commemorative snaps. And of course, Santa will be on hand for the tree-lighting ceremony at 5:30pm. Event admission is free and open to the public. Hot food, drink and adult beverages will be available for purchase from various local vendors.
The Explore Livingston Coalition is comprised of members from Livingston’s Tourism Business Improvement District in partnership with the Downtown Livingston Business Improvement District and Convention & Visitors Bureau. The collective provides services, projects, marketing and grants supporting events that bring tourism dollars into Livingston’s economy.
