Newport on the Levee officially kicks off the Holiday Season with one of the city’s best-loved events, Light Up the Levee! Now in its 11th year, 2019 promises to be just as spectacular when we light our 50-foot tree of 1.4 million lights. The event takes place on Saturday, November 23. 5:30pm to 10pm. This citywide, beloved event would not be complete without Santa’s grand helicopter arrival, musical performances, the first snowfall of the season from the Levee’s rooftops, topped off by a brilliant firework display, children’s activities, food trucks, and new for adults and families alike, an After Party with live music, food and drinks.
