Light Up Lakewood
4:00 PM - 8:00 PM
It’s a most joyous of Lakewood traditions and it’s back in Downtown Lakewood for an 11th consecutive year. The spirit of the season will come to life with holiday cheer when Light Up Lakewood 2017 takes place on Saturday, December 2.

Sponsored by First Federal Lakewood and presented by LakewoodAlive, Light Up Lakewood celebrates the season and the richness of our city’s vibrancy. This free, family-friendly event in Downtown Lakewood features a holiday parade, lighting ceremony, winter fireworks, live music by the Sellouts, ice carvings, hot chocolate, food trucks, children’s games and much more.

Attendees are invited to stroll Lakewood’s downtown district and visit local stores and restaurants while taking in the sights and sounds of one of Northeast Ohio’s largest holiday celebrations. Light Up Lakewood serves as a marquee event for the entire region, having drawn an estimated 20,000 guests last year.

Light Up Lakewood represents a day-long celebration that starts with Lunch with Santa at Dewey’s Pizza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and doesn’t end until the music stops playing at 8 p.m. Guests’ sensory perceptions will be delighted by the twinkle of holiday lights, the cheerful sounds of carolers and the warmth exuded by the festive, friendly atmosphere.

Highlights include Vendor Village inside the historic Lakewood Masonic Temple, the ever-popular Holiday Parade, which commences at Manor Park at 5 p.m. and ends in front of the Lakewood Public Library, live entertainment provided by bands, choirs, the Lighting Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Stage at City Center Park and a can’t-miss fireworks show at 7 p.m. over the rooftops of Downtown Lakewood.
