Mark your calendar now to attend the Glitter & Glow Block Party on Saturday, Jan. 7, 4-10 p.m.
This will be your last opportunity to see the Glitters holiday light display, and the city likes to send out the holiday season with a bang! Take in the stunning 1.5 million LED lights, along with two dozen hot air balloons glowing throughout 16 blocks of Historic Downtown Glendale.
