More about the 2019 Big Bright Light Show
The Big, Bright Light Show, a holiday display unlike any in the Midwest, is entering its 14th season. The display will include buildings on Main Street beginning at the South Bridge and extending to University Drive. Additionally, buildings on Fourth Street from Walnut to Water Street will be covered.
“The Big, Bright Light Show is holiday magic personified; it is something you have to see to believe,” stated Kristi Trevarrow, Executive Director of the Rochester Downtown Development Authority. “This holiday tradition is one of a kind, and the perfect complement to the one-of-a-kind shopping experience one will find in Downtown Rochester.”
New this year is Santa’s Phone Booth. Located at the northwest corner of Third & Main, visitors can pop in and hear a message from the big guy himself (and take a selfie while you’re there)!
The 2019 Big, Bright Light Show is presented by Fox Automotive. Additional Sponsors include Downtown Rochester and WXYZ Detroit- Channel 7.
