The 2021 Courthouse Lighting Ceremony is Tuesday, Nov. 23rd at 7 p.m. where we will honor our HEALTHCARE and ESSENTIAL WORKERS
with a fireworks show coordinated to music and a 35-foot Christmas tree decorated with thousands of LED lights in the Courthouse Rotunda.
From 5-7 p.m. we will have selfies with Santa, climbing walls, bungee trampolines, bounce houses, cartoon portraits, music, military and first responder vehicles on display in front of the Pueblo County Courthouse. The Courthouse Lighting started in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks. Former Pueblo County Commissioner Matt Peulen thought the County should do something for Christmas. The tradition of decorating the Courthouse has been taking place since 1912, when the Courthouse was constructed.
The Courthouse is located at 215 W. 10th Street in Pueblo, CO.
The Courthouse Lighting Ceremony is funded with private money.
