Amazing Light Displays!

Amazing Light Displays!

Some old standards along with some new and exciting new additions!

NEW -The Garden at Newfields (Indianapolis Art Museum)  More info HERE
Stroll Winterlights at Newfields from November 19th through January 7th amid the glow of a million bulbs—you know the song Walking in a Winter Wonderland? Now you can actually do it, ambling side-by-side with family and friends through memorable holiday light displays, in forest, field and gardens—from “whimsy trees” to the Snowflake Bridge to the grand AllĂ©e.
Winterlights will run twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. throughout the holiday season. Ticket prices begin at $25 for public and $20 for members. Save 20 percent by purchasing your tickets online. Member preview evenings are offered on Nov. 17 and 18 for just $10.

OLD STANDARD -Circle of Lights (Downtown Indy)  More info HERE

For 55 years, thousands of spectators have gathered Downtown at Monument Circle to see the most spectacular holiday display illuminate. Central Indiana’s most beloved tradition is here again. Downtown Indy, Inc.’s Circle of Lights® presented by IBEW #481 will take place the day after Thanksgiving.
New this year: The decorations on the Soldiers & Sailors Monument will look familiar – 52 garland strands with 4,784 colored lights, strung from the top of the Monument to its base. However, all of the strands are new this year including the use of LED bulbs for the first time ever. These improvements are the first phase of the Keeping Spirits Bright capital campaign with a goal to raise $2 million to further enhance and keep this beloved tradition alive. The Monument will continue to be surrounded with 26 larger-than-life toy soldiers and sailors and 26 peppermint sticks.
More than 100,000 spectators are expected for the free ceremonial lighting and holiday kickoff on Friday, November 24. Entertainers chosen from statewide video auditions will share the stage with Sandi Patty, host of the Indianapolis Symphony’s IPL Yuletide Celebration, as well as Dance Kaleidoscope's Mariel Greenlee performing a contemporary take on "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," Broadway in Indianapolis' Ralphie from A Christmas Story - The Musical, and the cast of Indiana Repertory Theatre's Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
Festivities begin at 6 pm, with the live televised show running 7-8 pm on (NBC) WTHR-13. The Monument light-up will occur at approximately 7:55 pm.
And who gets to “flip the switch?” Each year, a lucky child is chosen from the Carson’s Coloring Contest to help Santa illuminate the night.
To conclude the evening, watch the sky for a spectacular fireworks finale
