Downtown d'Lights!
Date: December 4th, 2015
Time: 5:00 PM
Location: Historic Perry Square & Boston Store Lobby


The Erie Downtown Partnership will host the 10th Annual Downtown d’Lights celebration that includes an increased range of attractions for the official Holiday Season kick off in Downtown Erie. Scheduled for Friday, December 4th, 2015, this event is designed to promote the City’s unique combination of holiday activities and shopping.

The City’s most loved Downtown d’Lights traditions will return along with several new activities. The event starts at 5:00 p.m. and the park will come alive at 6:10 p.m. when Santa and Mayor Joe Sinnott “flip the switch” and thousands of lights fill Perry Square. See all of Downtown sparkle as UPMC Health Plan lights up the Boston Store along with Erie Insurance, Gannon University, the HANDS building and more. Enjoy free horse drawn carriage rides from 6-8 pm. There will also be free coffee and hot chocolate from the Erie Vet Center and the Ye Old Sweet Shoppe will be there with free cookies.
