Though Christmas is still months away, now is the perfect time to start planning ways for you and your business to participate in the third annual “Light Up State Street” event. Organized by the State Street Corridor Improvement Authority, this event draws thousands of people each year. This year, we are hoping to make it even bigger and better.
