The front of the Cathedral of St. Paul will be aglow with large-scale Christmas light murals for a weekend next month.
From Dec. 17-19, a light show set to music that tells the story of Jesus' birth will be projected on the cathedral, according to the Cathedral Heritage Foundation, which is putting on the free show.
The "Our Cathedral Illuminated: The Manger" show will mark the United States debut of Luxmuralis, an England-based projection art company that's known throughout Europe for its award-winning shows that attract thousands of people.
In keeping with Minnesota's COVID-19 restrictions, the 12-minute light show is a drive-by event that will also be streamed live on the Cathedral Heritage Foundation's Facebook page here.
The light show will play on a continuous loop from 6-9 p.m. each night. The bike lanes on John Ireland Boulevard in front of the cathedral will be closed so people can park their vehicles and watch the show.
