    First Friday “Light Up Carbondale”

    December 4 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    Youngsters can visit with Santa and give him their wish lists in the warmth of The Launchpad. Santa will be at the Launchpad from 3:00 until 7:00 pm. The Launchpad will also feature classic holiday movies and enjoy holiday shopping at the Deck the Walls holiday market in the R2 Gallery. Santa will take his sleigh to perform his magic and light up the trees and holiday lights on Main Street. Santa’s first stop will be at the large tree on Main Street & Weant Boulevard near the Forest Service building around 5:15 pm. The Roaring Fork High School Chamber Choir will get everyone in the spirit with some acapella carols. “Oh Christmas Tree” will start the festivities and when the holiday spirit reaches its crescendo, Santa will start the countdown and magically illuminate all the lights on the trees on Main Street.
