Light the Lights City & County Building
Performers will entertain the crowd from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. The City and County Building lighting display is entirely lit with LED lights and uses an estimated one-third of the energy it did in previous years.

Entertainment will include local a cappella singers, the Mistletones, a visit from Dinger Claus (the Colorado Rockies Mascot decked out in holiday uniform) and much more. At 6:30 p.m., a countdown will mark the lighting of a 35-foot Douglas-fir tree. Sparkling lights also will illuminate the historic Denver Union Station in the heart of Lower Downtown.

A special bell session will play on December 24 at 7:14 p.m. for the "Bells for Peace" organization as part of an effort to have bells around the world play Silent Night to honor the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Eve truce during World War I.
