Light Up Night in Pittsburgh has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership made the announcement on Friday posting the following statement on their website:

"On what would have been the 60th year of Light Up Night®, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership officially announced that the annual event will be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The event is the largest one-day event in Pittsburgh, and typically draws hundreds of thousands of people, but with public health and safety a primary concern, the PDP has pivoted efforts towards a newly reimagined holiday experience for 2020."
