Downtown to light up with Circle of Lights


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The finishing touches are being added to Monument Circle for the Circle of Lights Show on Friday.

Earlier this month, volunteers from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 481 put up lights and garland.

Downtown Indy Inc. expects more than 100,000 people to attend the ceremony.

One lucky child will be picked to “flip the switch” and turn on the lights.

Some big names, including Santa and Mayor Joe Hogsett, are expected to be there.

There will also be musical performances and a fireworks show.

“This is the cultural and geographical hub of our community, right here on Monument Circle. It’s where we gather to celebrate and remember and this is literally where the largest free annual festival is in Indiana, on Monument Circle,” said Bob Schultz of Downtown Indy Inc.

The Circle of Lights ceremony kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday. The lights will be turned on around 7:55 p.m.
