Have you wondered what’s done with the old, burned out bulbs used for Circle of Lights? Each discarded bulb is saved.
This year and in 2017, Downtown Indy, Inc. is working with Past Unique, an heirloom creator, who has designed a limited-edition ornament made with one of the actual holiday bulbs that has adorned the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Monument each holiday season in Downtown.
For many years, each bulb has served its community well and is now being retired to make way for updated technology and innovation. The bulbs are among of the 4,784 lights that have been put in place each year by volunteers from IBEW Local #481 and Downtown Indy, Inc.
