INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center is bringing back its traditional holiday light show with the promise the drive-through display will be bigger and brighter than ever.
This year's display, which opens Nov. 11 and runs through New Year's Day 2023, features singing snowmen more than 20 feet tall, a life-sized Nativity scene, Candyland, a giant American flag and a 240-foot wall of lights.
The Night of Lights features a 2-mile car ride through millions of LED lights controlled by hundreds of computers feeding miles of wires to make up the largest synchronized show in central Indiana.
Guests tune their car radios to music that ranges from holiday classics to modern songs so that visitors of all ages can enjoy the synchronized lighted trees, glowing snowflakes, dancing candy canes, "mischievous" elves and tunnels of lights.
The show will be open from 6-10 p.m. regardless of the weather.
