Light Up St. Matthews has been a tradition for decades for hundreds of residents and visitors to the City of St. Matthews.  The annual Light Up Brown Park features musical entertainment, letters to Santa, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus, train rides, ice skating, activities for the kids, and fun for the entire family.  Free cookies and hot chocolate are available for everyone to enjoy. No matter the weather, most activities are held under a big tent. The event begins at 3:00 p.m. and concludes at 6:00 p.m. when the switch is thrown and Brown Park “Lights Up” with thousands and thousands of colorful holiday lights.
