Each night throughout the year, Downtown Indianapolis hosts a light projection show called “Shining a Light.” This multimedia display on Monument Circle plays three times each night. During special events and holidays, new projections have been introduced. The nightly show is a tribute to our military and recognizes Indiana heroes who have recently lost their lives serving our country.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Special Presentation
During the week and weekend leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a special video tribute will play following the Shining a Light show. Visit Monument Circle each night from January 11-16 to see the MLK Day projection. The shows are scheduled for 6:30 pm, 8 pm, and 9:30 pm. The 2023 Shining a Light tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King will highlight his mission to “Make a Career of Humanity.”
The show is best viewed from the steps of Monument Circle, facing the AES building.
You can see the MLK tribute downtown from Wednesday, January 11 through Monday, January 16, 2023.
