Light Check Begins for Circle of Lights on Monument Circle

Nearly 4,800 LED bulbs in multiple colors make up the display.

INDIANAPOLIS — You might say it is a sign the holidays are getting closer. On Tuesday, electricians began checking the bulbs for the Circle of Lights presentation on Monument Circle.

At the Indiana State Fairgrounds, retired electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 481 checked each bulb and inspected all of the wires, making replacements as needed.

Nearly 4,800 LED bulbs in multiple colors make up the display.

IBEW representatives said it’s important to make sure everything is working properly for the moment when the switch is flipped.

Lance Bradbury, a business representative for the IBEW Local 481, said, “It’s the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, so we use different colors to represent each branch of the armed services. So, we have green for the Army, clear for the Air Force, blue for the Navy, yellow for the Coast Guard and red for the Marines.”

IBEW crews will begin putting up the display Nov. 16. on Monument Circle. The lighting ceremony will be November 29.
