Downtown Indy Inc.'s Circle of Lights® presented by IBEW 481 is Indy's most time-honored holiday tradition. In 2020, the event is going to look and feel a little different than the past 57 years due to precautions being taken to protect against COVID-19.
This year, the Circle of Lights event that traditionally fills Monument Circle and surrounding Downtown streets with 100,000 spectators on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving will be a special made-for-TV only event. Instead of congregating Downtown, the show will be seen exclusively on WTHR Channel 13.
Musical acts chosen from the forthcoming Tom Wood Talent Search for the television event will still create a festive holiday spirit and Santa will help flip the switch to illuminate Monument Circle, marking the kick-off to the holiday season. All spectators will enjoy the show from the comfort of their homes.
