This event is in conjunction with Small Business Saturday and we encourage everyone to enjoy the wonderful shops, restaurants and bars in Downtown Livingston before and after the Light Up Livingston festivities.

All are invited to this free community event to kick off the magical holiday season in Livingston. The Depot Park trees will be be lit on 11/26 and Light Up Livingston up through the New Year, thanks to the Holiday Lights Committee and donors, and Downtown is lit up with large light pole sowflake lights thanks to the Downtown Livingston Business Improvement District.

* There will be food trucks, beer, wine, and more for purchase 
* The Livingston Model Railroaders will be running their model trains in the basement of the baggage building during the event, masks are required in this magical miniature train wonderland.

* Holiday Lights of Livingston, a community-funded nonprofit that lights the Depot trees, will be in attendance.

Everyone is encouraged to shop, eat, drink and be merry at Downtown and area businesses. When you spend locally in Livingston, your dollars circulate seven times in the community, so we applaud everyone who supports Livingston’s small business economy.

We look forward to a bright and beautiful holiday season full of events and opportunities to support Livingston businesses.
