Let’s just say, if you want to stay warm, have fun and enter to win some great prizes on Pittsburgh’s Friday, November 21st citywide Light Up Night, MACY’s Downtown is where you should plan to be.  Hubby the boys and I will be there and we’d love to spend Light Up Night with our fellow Brown Mamas.

Well, where do we get started? At the beginning of course.  Before heading into the store, enjoy a 6 pm performance on the Smithfield Stage that includes Jamie Lynn Spears and Fire and Flow and an appearance by Make-A-Wish Foundation supporter and Macy’s holiday ambassador Cam Heyward.  The performance will be hosted by YouTube sensations Rose & Rosie.  And of course, Santa Clause will be there! After watching the show, warm-up with a complimentary cup of hot cocoa and meet the stars of the show.

I know many of our mamas have expressed interest in tickets to see The Nutcracker at Pittsburgh’s Ballet Theater and a trip down to MACY’s Light Up Night Celebration just might get ya there.  Enter the store on the Main Floor’s Forbes Street Entrance and snap a pick with the beloved Nutcracker before you enter to win 4 tickets to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s production of the show!

For the mamas with little ones, head up to the 5th Floor Kid’s Department for face painting, balloon art and some special prizes for the kids.  Plus, their favorite underwater creature Spongebob will be there for pics!

Oh, and for you mamas who love the Steelers, which is practically all of us, there’s more Cam Heyward action in the Locker Room by LIDS on the 2nd Floor.  At 7:15 pm, the first 100 customers will meet #97 and score a photo with him.  PLUS, enter to win a pair of 2015 pre-season tickets that includes pre-game access!

Wanna jam to some bumpin’ beats?  Head up to the 4th floor to listen to DJ Bonics and get decked out with some flash tattoos and glow jewelry before heading out to see the fireworks for Light Up Night, which starts promptly at 9:38 pm. Here’s a link to find out more about the fireworks.

Also, here’s 3 tips to enjoy Macy’s Light Up Night with no hassle:

1. Wear a watch so you can use your time wisely & enjoy all that Macy’s has to offer

2. Dress Warm.  Although you’ll be inside, you’ll want to be prepared for the fireworks.  The forecast for Friday is just 39 degrees.

3. Bring something special to have autographed.  You can put it in a frame with pictures as a reminder of this special day you’ll be spending with your family!

Alright mamas, I hope to see you there!!!!
