Union Station's massive light show begins at 6 p.m., with a hand-bell choir, carolers and a Children's Museum craft table to keep the kids busy, plus a visit from the festively dressed Rockies mascot Dinger Claus. At the City and County Building, which sports brand-new energy-efficient LED bulbs, a countdown to light-up will take place at 6:45 p.m. In addition, local business owners have gone all out for LoDo Aglow, a design contest encouraging over-the-top window displays to add to the holiday bling.
All viewings are free and open to the public. Ice-skate rental at Skyline is just $2, or BYO skates; the rink will be open through Valentine's Day 2012. For a full schedule of the evening's events, visit www.downtowndenver.com or call 303-534-6161.
