Light Up Lakewood 2023


Dec. 2 kicks off LakewoodAlive’s 17th annual tradition of Light Up Lakewood, a free festive Christmas celebration where Lakewood residents show off their holiday cheer with their best Christmas lights and decorations. Light Up Lakewood will take place along Detroit Ave in downtown Lakewood from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. You can expect live music, hot chocolate, food trucks, winter fireworks, and of course, a lighting ceremony. 

This event is an annual opportunity for a celebration of community and holiday festivities combined. Many Lakewood residents appreciate it as a tradition, such as Naysa McGregor, who says that Light Up Lakewood is “a nice time of the year where the Lakewood community all come together to celebrate the season. I really loved seeing all the beautiful lights and the parade last year, and I can’t wait to see them again this year.”

Overall, anyone who can should come to see it. It’s completely free unless you’d like to buy some refreshments or activities. Be sure to be there!
