Downtown Indianapolis introduced a light projection show called “Shining a Light” that plays three times each night. During special events, 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.
During the weekend leading up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a special video tribute will play following the Shining a Light show. The shows are scheduled for 6:30 pm, 8 pm and 10 pm, however at that time, an announcement is made that “The show will begin in 10 minutes.”
The show is best viewed from the steps of Monument Circle, facing the AES building.
You can see the MLK tribute through Monday, January 17, 2022. The video features local community leaders answering the question that Dr. King posed, “What are you doing for others?”
