Hundreds of people filled Lorain’s Veteran Park downtown Saturday night for the 11th Annual “Light Up Lorain”. Gary Fischer and his daughter Natalie hosted the event offering to warm people up with free hot chocolate and treats. After leading the crowd in a rendition of Jingle Bells they turned the entertainment over to the Little Lighthouse Learning Center Singers & The Mason School Choir.

About 6:15 the big moment came when Lorain Safety Service Director Mike Kobylka flipped the switch turning on the Christmas lights in the park and igniting the fireworks in the City Hall parking lot and appeared off the roof of City Hall.

The event was co-sponsored by the Lorain Growth Corporation, The City of Lorain, The Lorain Police Department, The Lorain Fire Department and the Lorain Palace Theatre.

Mike Callender, Executive Director of the Lorain Growth Corporation, said that the event was created to spotlight downtown Lorain and to showcase all of the businesses in the downtown area. “Downtown Lorain has so much to offer and we are adding more businesses all the time. It is great to see so many families coming downtown tonight, I just hope they like what they see and come back more often and support the local shops and restaurants.”
