Scenes from Light Up Night 2018 in Pittsburgh
The 58th annual Light Up Night was Friday night in Pittsburgh, featuring extended hours to allow for more live music performances, starting earlier in the evening and going later into the night.
A laser show also was added as part of the Highmark Tree Lighting, and fireworks were slated for 10 p.m.
Not able to make it into Pittsburgh for the festivities? Here are scenes from around town, as chronicled by people enjoying it on social media.
Might as well start with a shameless plug:
a security guard told me how wild downtown pittsburgh will be for #lightupnight and i thought, personal injury lawyers get a bad wrap. there's an element of human willpower that inevitably leads to conflict #personalinjury #LUN2018

Seriously, though. Nothing wrong with striking when the iron’s hot… Right, Kit?
