Photos from the 59th annual Light Up Night

The 59th annual Pittsburgh Light Up Night on Friday brought thousands Downtown to watch as five massive trees were lit for the first time in the season, including the trees at PPG Place and on the corner of the Highmark building. The event, hosted by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, also offered free live music and entertainment, including a figure skating show and ice sculpture carving demonstrations.
