When to See "Shining A Light" This Holiday Season

DECEMBER 24, 2020

Written by Visit Indy author Annie Browning


This year we’re opting outside during the chilly holiday season more than ever before, making the always iconic Circle of Lights the perfect holiday activity. While there’s nothing quite like seeing the Soldiers & Sailors Monument decked out in hundreds of thousands of sparkling Christmas lights, this year there’s more to add to your schedule. With Downtown Indy, Inc.'s Shining A Light nightly presentation, there's always something to look forward to during your evenings in downtown Indy. 

At 6:30 pm, 8:00 pm, and 10:00 pm, Circle of Lights will be accompanied by Indy’s Signature Salute (with a holiday twist). Through December 31, visitors can experience a 360-degree audio, visual and light production on Monument Circle. Holiday performances, signature treats and festive music will fill the hub of downtown Indy. While this year may feel a bit different, the Signature Salute is a perfect way to experience socially distant holiday cheer.The full holiday schedule includes:

6:00 pm – America the Beautiful

6:30 pm– Signature Salute/Holiday Presentation

7:00 pm – Armed Forces Medley

8:00 pm – Signature Salute/Holiday Presentation

10:00 pm – Signature Salute/Holiday Presentation

10:30 pm – National Anthem
