The Christmas lights in Lisbon will be inaugurated on November 30th and will remain on until Twelfth Day, January 6th, informed the municipality, highlighting that they will operate with reduced hours to save and energy efficiency.
“Lisbon will be lit in traditional locations, including squares, streets and avenues, using low-consumption lamps with LED technology, allowing an energy saving of around 80% compared to incandescence technology”, said the city council, in a note sent to the Lusa agency.
Christmas lights hours are 5:30pm to 11pm on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; from 5:30 pm to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays; and from 5:30 pm to 1:00 am on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.
The inauguration is scheduled for 7pm on November 30th at Terreiro do Paço, followed by a free-entry concert by Anjos.
The ‘Christmas Lights’ initiative is promoted through a protocol between the municipality and the Union of Commerce and Services Associations (UACS), with an investment of 749,500 euros, “the same amount as in recent years”, according to the municipality.
