The city is preparing to celebrate the holiday season, including “Light up the Holidays,” an evening of family fun that features the lighting of the Liberty Pole downtown.
The lighting ceremony is scheduled to take place at 4:30 p.m. Dec. 7, and will be followed by a holiday parade to the ice rink at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park, formerly Manhattan Square Park, for a dedication ceremony and the opening of the ice rink for the season.
Many other activities are planned for the day. For more information, call 311 or for those outside the city, call (585) 428-5990. Also, visit www.cityofrochester.gov.
