Holiday light viewing doesn’t have to be cold or seen through your car window. Instead, enjoy the seasonal spectacle at downtown's Duke Energy Convention Center this year.

Tickets for Lumaze, an “all-indoor Christmas light festival and market,” are on sale now, according to a press release from organizers. The celebration kicks off Nov. 26 and lasts through Jan. 1, 2022.

Organizers say the theme for Cincinnati's inaugural Lumaze is “Glow Around the World,” where visitors will find “magnificent world landmarks” rendered in light throughout the indoor winter wonderland. 

They say there will also be interactive activities like LED hopscotch and a swing. And, of course, what would a holiday festival be without a visit from Santa? Princesses will also be roaming around the illuminated celebration. 

For the adults, organizers say there will be a fully stocked bar with seasonal beverages and live music to enjoy.  

“With the turnout from the shows we’ve held in Salt Lake City, Seattle and Pittsburgh, we were thrilled to bring the joy of the season through this holiday light festival to Cincinnati,” says Lumaze Cincinnati Event Manager Alex Bard.

Enjoy 100,000 square feet of lights, music, drinks and festivities inside a warm venue. 

Lumaze says they are following Cincinnati’s local COVID-19 precautions and protocols.
