Many organizations and individuals have played a part to design, install and implement the Circle of Lights® decor and celebration. However, only one organization has taken part each and every year since 1962. 

Downtown Indy, Inc. salutes the hardworking men and women of IBEW 481 who have cared for this tradition for 56 years. Their dedication, craftsmanship, countless volunteer hours and monumental financial support make our community brighter. 

Their commitment to our community was truly apparent as volunteers worked to carefully take down the lights as seven inches of snow fell on the city this weekend. 



“Thanks to the IBEW 481 electrical workers and Quality Connection Contractors who assist us each year,” said Sherry Seiwert, Downtown Indy, Inc. president.  “They commit their time and talent to transform Downtown Indianapolis into a magical, holiday wonderland. We appreciate their dedication to this timeless tradition.”

Thanks to IBEW 481, the lighting of Monument Circle remains one of Central Indiana’s most beloved sights. 

We look forward to next year!
