The annual event features kid’s crafts, live entertainment, Indianapolis’ only twilight parade, and a holiday light display lighting ceremony.

The city’s ONLY night-time parade features parade units festively decorated and lighted, making it a unique experience for families and a wonderful way for the community to ring in the holiday season. Free glow-in-the-dark necklaces and bracelets will be handed out to kids.

The culmination of the festival is the Lighting Ceremony. After the parade, make your way to the Canal Esplanade to help Santa count down to the lighting of the display at the Fire Station.
