Midtown Crossing is set to illuminate and amplify the holiday season once again. The Holiday Lights Spectacular, a true sight and sound experience, returns to Turner Park in late November for a third year in a row.

Featuring an enthusiastic blend of holiday music and light projected onto Midtown Crossing’s condominium buildings, this season’s evening shows will run Thursday through Sunday, launching on Saturday, November 26, and continuing through Sunday, January 1, 2017. The show lasts approx. 20-minutes each night and is being orchestrated by Holiday Lights Spectacular veteran FadeUp Design Group. (For a true view of the 2015 Holiday Lights Spectacular, check out this video.) 

New in 2016 – Midtown Crossing and the Holiday Lights Spectacular are proud to be partnering with three impactful nonprofits to raise money and awareness. Children representing each organization will “flip the switch” to start the shows during that nonprofits’ featured week – and donations will be collected at Midtown Crossing retailers.

  • Dec 1-4: Child Saving Institute
  • Dec 8-11: Girls, Inc.
  • Dec 15-18: Teammates

As it has in year’s past, the Holiday Lights Spectacular will complement Midtown Crossing’s other holiday happenings, including:
