• Soldiers and Sailors Monument gets ready for the holidays

    November 14, 2011 No comments

    There are about two weeks until the 49th Annual Circle of Lights. In preparation for the event, approximately 200 volunteer electricians spent 4 hours Saturday morning, stringing nearly 4,800 lights and 52 garland strands on the Soldiers and Sailors Monument downtown.

    The Contractors of Quality Connection, Electrical Workers of IBEW 481 and Indianapolis Downtown, Inc. make the event happen every year.

    More than 100,000 people are expected for the ceremonial lighting and holiday kickoff on November 25th, the day after Thanksgiving.

    Each year, one lucky child is chosen from a statewide coloring contest to help “flip the switch” with Santa and the Mayor.
