7 Things to Do This Weekend Near Indianapolis

I am Buddy the Elf excited right now. Or maybe Clark Griswold excited. Regardless, I have big news.

Our Central Indiana Christmas Lights List is live for 2023!

From inflatables to synchronized music shows, there are some seriously amazing light displays around Indy. Of course, Christmas Nights of Lights will always be a family favorite, it’s amazing to see the work of talented families and individuals in Central Indiana. 

Our team has been scouring the streets for the best and brightest holiday light displays around Indy, and we are adding more locations every night. If you see a list-worthy display we don’t have on our list, feel free to message us the address so our team can verify the location. 

Our Jewish friends kicked off Hanukkah December 7. You can join in on area celebrations and Community Menorah Lightings through December 15. 

‘Tis the season, let’s #PlayIndy!
