One of Downtown Indianapolis’ most time-honored holiday traditions is approaching.
The electrical workers of IBEW 481 will install the 4,764 lights onto the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Saturday in preparation of the 59th annual Circle of Lights.
Bob Shultz with Downtown Indy, Inc, said the festive celebration returns as an in-person event this year.
“We encourage unvaccinated attendees to mask up or anyone who feels they wish to be comfortable doing so. It is a full, live production on monument circle,” Shultz said.
The Circle of Lights will take place Friday, Nov. 26, marking the kick-off to the holiday season in Central Indiana.
Entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. Lighting is approximately at 7:55 p.m.
The lights will be illuminated throughout the holiday season until Dec. 30.
