Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting fireworks

 HOUSTON (Aug. 2017) . . . Due to the construction of Post Oak Boulevard, the Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting event, annually held on Thanksgiving evening, is being postponed until 2019. Post Oak Boulevard is currently being rebuilt into an exquisitely designed grand boulevard.  Concurrently, plans are underway to produce an ALL NEW Uptown Houston Holiday Lighting event. “We have an opportunity to create an even more spectacular event and an incredible destination boulevard for the holidays,” said John Breeding, President, Uptown Houston District. “Many of the new elements on the boulevard will become feature holiday decorations.”   The traditional Thanksgiving evening event will recommence November 2019.

The 32nd Annual Uptown Holiday Lighting event will return Thanksgiving evening, November 28, 2019 on a newly transformed Post Oak Boulevard.This FREE family event features festive performances by local crowd favorites like the Houston Concert Band, holiday concessions, uniquely designed art cars, and a special appearance from Santa.

This year, over 300 all-new 20-foot holiday trees will welcome visitors to Uptown in grand fashion, spanning the length of Post Oak Boulevard from the West Loop to Richmond Avenue.These custom artisan-fabricated holiday trees, each adorned in 249 individually controllable LED lights, feature an amazing integration of lighting technology to create a stunning multi-colored light show that will dance along the Boulevard.

The evening will culminate with a traditional countdown as Santa conducts the ceremonial lighting of the new holiday trees, followed by an exhilarating fireworks extravaganza and dazzling new light show.

Throughout the holiday season, visitors will be treated to a continuous holiday light show choreographed to holiday music, using the uniquely designed Uptown music app.
