Lumaze is bringing its Christmas festival of lights to Pittsburgh this year. Glow Pittsburgh will feature a range of fun family-friendly activities for both kids and adults.
What could possibly be better than great news about Christmas in the middle of August? With us counting down the days until the end of summer and looking forward to the days when its sweater weather again, Pittsburgh residents just got some news that's bound to get them jumping with joy.
This year, one of the world's biggest indoor Christmas festivals is making its way to Pittsburgh and I'm honestly considering moving my whole family there. Yep, jingle the bells and deck up your Christmas trees, folks. You've got a pretty special Yuletide coming your way this year.
Lumaze, aka Christmas Glow in the US, is popularly touted as one of the world's largest indoor Christmas festivals. First launched in 2017 near Vancouver, Canada, organizers are bringing the gorgeous festival to 31st Street Studios in Pittsburgh’s Strip District this year. And to make things even more magical, the festival will feature a fairytale Christmas theme!
The event, which is set to take place from November 23 to January 4, 2020, is "calling all princes and princesses! Santa has lost his presents and has enlisted the help of his favorite Storyland characters and... you. Wander through your own holiday fairytale as you uncover 6 hidden presents for a prize!"
The event features Christmas light gardens, a vendor market, interactive lights, live entertainment, LED swings, "Glen the Glow-comotive," and more.
Posting a video of what visitors can expect at the festival, the official Instagram account for Glow Pittsburgh wrote: The world's largest indoor Christmas festival is coming to Pittsburgh!
