Pittsburgh Light Up Night

Pittsburgh’s Light Up Night is probably the biggest event of the year for the city, with an estimated 800k Burghers in attendance and 21 million dollars in revenue.

If you’re not into crowds, I’m having light up night at my house. It’ll involve my 2 sons carrying around flashlights and possibly some Giant Eagle egg nog. For those who would not like to participate in my festivities, Light Up Night takes place on November 16, 2012 from 5-10 and Saturday starting at noon.
