Join Carmel Virtually as they ‘Light up the City’

Carmel, IN – With enhanced lighting features in the heart of the city and along the Monon Greenway the City of Carmel will introduce their annual tree lighting VIRTUALLY this year. Designed to lift the spirits of the community the new “Light up the City” virtual event was developed after the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the need to adjust our holiday celebrations.

Join us virtually at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 21, when we will air a prerecorded video of the lighting, hosted by Carmel City Council member Jeff Worrell; music from Actors Theatre of Indiana and the Carmel Symphony Orchestra and of course Santa and his pals! The video will be aired on Facebook, YouTube and CarmelTV.

“Given the current state of this pandemic, we recognized the need to create ways people can enjoy our annual holiday traditions safely,” said Nancy Heck, Director of the Community Relations and Economic Development Department. “We eagerly long for a return to our large in-person events, but our first priority is the safety of our community.”
