Indianapolis is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its big Christmas tree in the center of the city. And fittingly, this year’s Circle of Lights presented by IBEW 481 — which begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday — will be a big celebration on Monument Circle with a new stage location and video projection recognizing the holidays and veterans, according to Downtown Indy.

Here’s what you need to know about the schedule, entertainment, street closures and more.

Who you’ll see

Before the lights come on, a series of artists will perform, including:

  • Kaylee Johnson-Bradley singing the National Anthem
  • The Doo Band
  • The Bergamot
  • Daniel Nix Orchestra
  • Indianapolis Men’s Chorus
  • B. Thompson
  • Kelly Clarkson, whose performance from her studio will be broadcast on WTHR Channel 13
  • Christ Church Cathedral’s Coro Latinoamericano
  • Morgan Taylor

Mr. Kinetik will perform after the tree lights up.

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Indianapolis is lit up by 4,784 bulbs on Friday, Nov. 29, 2019. More than 100,000 people gathered for Circle of Lights to kick off the holiday season.

In a change this year, the main performance stage will be moved to the circle’s south side. Shortly before 8 p.m., Santa and the child selected from the AES Indiana Coloring Contest will flip the switch to the sparkle. WTHR will broadcast the ceremony.

Electrical workers and volunteers of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 481 are assembling the lights and decorations. Look for 52 garland strands and 4,784 LED-colored lights as well as 26 giant toy soldiers and sailors and 26 peppermint sticks.
