If you’ve been in the Holy City for a few holidays, you’ll probably recognize this scene before we even get the chance to give you the scoop.

Mount Pleasant Towne Centre‘s annual Lights Up event is returning this Saturday to kick off the season in style. The local tradition features a 40-foot Christmas tree lighting, a laser light show, holiday tunes live in action, and festive drinks + treats. We’re looking forward to bites from local spots like SAVI Cucina and Wine Bar, & Lobster, Holy City Popcorn, and Holy City Homemade Italian Ice.

Plus, Santa Claus will be there — and let’s be honest, you’re never too old for a visit from old Saint Nick. Check it out this Saturday, Nov. 19 from 6-8 p.m.
