Indy plans a host of holiday events

More than 100,000 Hoosiers and visitors will gather on Monument Circle the Friday after Thanksgiving to celebrate the lighting of 4,784 lights strung from the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors monument.

The Circle of Lights presented by the Contractors of Quality Connection and Electrical Workers of IBEW 481 kicks off at 6 p.m. Nov. 29 and the lights will come on at about 7:45 p.m.

The celebration will be broadcast live on RTV-6 from 7 to 8 p.m., in addition to the Circle of Lights® Talent Search show, which will air at 7 p.m. Nov. 26 and 28. The winner of the Coloring Contest will be announced Nov. 25 and will be on stage to “flip the switch” on the light display. He or she will also win a College Choice 529 Direct Savings Plan valued at $529, along with four additional finalists. For more information, visit the website at www.indydt.com/COL.cfm.
