When: Fri., Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m. 2013
Nothing says Christmas in the Circle City more than the lighting of the tree at Monument Circle. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, head downtown to see the magestic 242-foot “tree” light up for the season, and celebrate with the lucky child is chosen from a coloring contest to help “flip the switch” with Santa and Mayor Ballard. Sandi Patty and The von Trapp Family singers will lead the entertainment, and they’ll be joined by musicians and entertainers from around the state who auditioned for chance to share the stage. Patty and the von Trapps will also be appearing on stage for the Duke Energy Holiday Celebration at the ISO.
