Have yourself a very merry Sewickley!

In the little town of Sewickley, business owners and residents have kicked off the holiday season for years with a Light Up Night and Santa Parade.

And those events continue this year under the rebranded A Very Merry Sewickley, which includes several events to get you in that festive spirit!

Light Up Night is set for Nov. 30. It takes place on Beaver and Broad streets in the town’s little business district. There’s music, food, lights and more! The event is held from 5-9.

As someone who has gone to Sewickley Light Up Night for several years, here are some very important tips:

  • Get there early. Parking and traffic can be a Grinch. Heritage Valley Sewickley hospital usually offers free parking in the garage. And if you don’t mind a short walk through residential areas, there is plenty of parking to be found.
  • If the weather is decent, the event will be packed. I’ve been there with probably 7,000 or 8,000 people some years. Other years, maybe 2,000. Just depends on the weather!

Other Sewickley events:

  • Santa Parade: 10:30 a.m. Dec. 1
  • Sundays in Sewickley: Dec. 2, 9, 16, 23
