Downtown Boulder Gets Ready to Switch on the Holidays with a Not-to-Be-Missed Entrance from Santa Himself

Santa flips the switch illuminating the County Courthouse, Pearl Street Mall & Star on Flagstaff Mountain this Saturday (Nov. 20)


Boulder, Colo. (November 16, 2010):  On Saturday, November 20, Downtown Boulder will shine brighter than ever when Santa “switches” on the lights illuminating the Pearl Street Mall, Boulder County Courthouse  and star on Flagstaff Mountain.  This year, over 35,000 bulbs will light up Pearl Street alone!  Along the pedestrian mall, 30 trees with be adorned with LED holiday lights (courtesy of the City of Boulder), as well as the shade structure on the 1300 block and skyline silhouettes on Pearl Street at the intersections of 10th and 16th streets not to mention 32 lighted snowflakes along the mall perimeters. 

 

Before the lights are flipped, enjoy live performances by Casey Middle and Boulder High School choirs.  Santa's promised a fantastic grand entrance this year, led as always, by the Fairview High School drum corps. Immediately following Switch on the Holidays, the Ice Rink at One Boulder Plaza will present Light up the Ice, a holiday ice show starring local skating stars - with a special appearance by Tweedles the Elf and the Rat King from the Nutcracker.  After the show the rink will be open for all to enjoy free ice skating between 6:30-10 p.m.

 

Downtown Boulder’s Switch on the Holidays is a free event and opened to the public.   This annual event is produced by Downtown Boulder, Incorporated and sponsored by the Camera and City of Boulder Parking Services.
