The 2019 Indiana State Fair just wrapped-up another 17-day run, but that doesn’t mean it’s slowing down. The Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center just announced it’s adding another attraction to its year-round venue with the inaugural display of “Christmas Nights of Lights.”

The State Fairgrounds says it hired Tennessee-based Titan Light Shows Inc. to produce a light show which offers more than a million LED lights. The company says that many lights are needed to create larger-than-life trees, glowing snowflakes and dancing candy canes.

State Fair officials hope this event become a new family holiday tradition.

“The Fairgrounds has been a popular family venue for a remarkable 127 years, and we’re thrilled to host his event – especially given that it exemplifies the true holiday spirit by supporting local charities,” Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center’s executive director Cindy Hoye.

Hoye says organizations like The Salvation Army, Toys for Tots and Gleaners Food bank will benefit from a portion of the ticket sales.

The two-mile long drive-through light show will be on display November 8 through January 1, including holidays.

Hoye says the display will be open rain or shine every evening. Ticket sales will be available at the gate.
