Holidays on the Circle

Get ready for a virtual snow globe on Monument Circle as two new elements are soon to be introduced as part of the spectacular Shining A Light.

Beginning Dec. 7 and the following two Saturdays, Dec. 14 & 21, Holidays on the Circle will take place from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., programmed by Downtown Indy, Inc. Holiday performances, signature treats and festive music will fill Monument Circle. The events are free and open to the public.

The Circle will transform into a snow globe as a holiday video presentation, designed to complement the festive decor, will follow immediately after the patriotic Signature Salute that runs at approximately 6:30 p.m. nightly. Additionally, holiday projections will wrap the buildings encompassing Monument Circle.

The event will include signature treats from General American Donut Co., holiday gifts from The Shop and grub from local food trucks. Attendees can take a ride on the HandleBar Santa Express.

Themed Holidays on the Circle Saturdays include:

Dec. 14: Downtown Indy & B105.7 present Voices of the Community
Enjoy entertainment from St. Joan of Arc Choir, Carmel Middle School Choir, Rosie & The Thorns and two soloists from Circle of Lights auditions. 

Dec. 21: Holiday Homecoming
