It’s the most wonderful time of the year…that time where downtown becomes a winter wonderland. From the time-honored lights on the side of the Regions Center to holiday decorations adorning windows, there’s plenty to see and do this month—no matter your tradition.
We’ve getting festive at Upswing this year with a pop-up, life-size snow globe on Saturday, Dec. 14. Seriously, we’re talking a 7-foot snow globe that you can climb into for a great Christmas photo op. See the photo below:
We’ll have hot chocolate and other treats, as well as the opportunity to customize your own snowflake ornament to hang on our Christmas tree! We’ll also be bringing snow to downtown! OK, not really, but we will have a kiddie pool of the artificial white stuff to kids of all ages to play with.
Feel free to stop by as you explore the holidays downtown!

Downtown Birmingham is full of beautiful buildings, both new and old! A good portion of those buildings consist of churches, and while many of them are beautiful to look at, they also have a rich history that often gets overlooked.
