With support from the Salt Lake Chamber, Downtown Alliance, University of Utah and other statewide community organizations, and urging Utahns everywhere to participate, Light Up December invites towers, buildings, homes and structures everywhere to join together and shine with Christmas lights this year. With the goal of spreading radiant messages of hope, joy and positivity, Light Up December aims to transform every Utah city and town into illuminated beacons of holiday spirit to bring cheer to all—in a physically and socially distant manner.
During December, visit the Winter Wonderland on the outdoor plaza of Vivint Arena, check out the University of Utah “U,” drive by the “Aurora Borealis” window display at the Eccles Theater and the holiday installations at Gallivan Center, take a stroll through the lights at Jordan Commons in Sandy, enjoy the festive decorations at City Creek Center, or take in messages of unity from the digital tower at The Gateway. Plus, don’t miss the virtual viewing of the lights at Temple Square.
Families can share their favorite Christmas light locations and post Light Up December pictures on social media with the hashtag #LightUpDecember.
