Join Oakland Business Improvement District for an awesome kick-off to our 2019 Oakland Light Up Season! They’ll have a tree lighting ceremony, free goodies, and a live brass ensemble playing all your holiday favorites! Bring in the season with brilliance!
Start at Forbes Digital Plaza (3815 Forbes Avenue) from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. for the tree lighting ceremony and the unveiling of this year’s “Messages of Hope for the Holidays” art installation which features words of encouragement and artistic expressions from university students, faculty, and staff that represent love, joy, and peace for all people.
As the festivities come to a close at Forbes Digital Plaza, everyone is encouraged to venture out and explore the Oakland business district to see all the holiday lights and take advantage of Light Up Season specials/discounts at many shops, bars, and restaurants throughout the Central Business District. While Soldiers & Sailors’ museum is closed to the public on the evening of Friday, December 6th, our building’s exterior will be illuminated in observation of this festive occasion. Please enjoy!
