Circle of Lights to stay on another week due to weather


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - We're getting another week to enjoy the Circle of Lights, even if the weather won't cooperate.

The lights on the Soldiers & Sailors Monument downtown were scheduled to be removed January 6, but extreme cold temperatures pushed the plan back a week to this coming Saturday.

But with a winter storm likely arriving in central Indiana Friday, Downtown Indy Inc. has changed the plan again. The lights will now stay on until January 20.

The lights have been shining on Monument Circle since Downtown Indy's Circle of Lights presented by the Electrical Workers of IBEW #481 on November 24.
