Popular Dazzling Christmas Light Show Returns to the Indiana State Fairgrounds

Indy’s favorite holiday tradition returns to the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center this fall and it’s bigger and brighter than ever! Along with singing snowmen (over 20’ tall), a life-sized Nativity, Candyland, a giant American flag and a spectacular 240 ft. wall of lights, Christmas Nights of Lights has added their most creative and colorful light display- The Field of Lights. This dazzling light display will be open from 6-10 p.m., November 11 through January 1, 2023 – rain, shine or snow!

This family-friendly event features a 2-mile car ride through millions of LED lights, hundreds of computers, and miles of wires, making it the largest synchronized show in Central Indiana. The entire show is synchronized to traditional and more modern Christmas music. Even more music has been added this year. Visitors of all ages will be awed by the display’s RGB technology that creates larger-than-life trees, glowing snowflakes, dancing candy canes, mischievous elves, enchanting tunnels of lights, and much more. In the warmth of their own vehicle, guests tune their radio dial to a dedicated signal and sing along to the sounds of the season synchronized to holiday lights.
