In addition to holiday performances, Pioneer Courthouse Square invites you to spread some light this holiday season with the purchase of a symbolic light on the 75ft Douglas-fir tree that shines bright in our City’s Living Room! The Square has partnered with Trillium Family Services, The American Heart Association, NAMI Multnomah, and The American Cancer Society. For a donation of $5, you too can light up a life on behalf of these organizations that provide vital services for our community. The Buy A Light Campaign will continue through December 31.
