The City of Fishers annual holiday lighting ceremony, Winter Wonderland, will return from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30.

The event will be held on central green and on the steps in front of city hall, 1 Municipal Dr. That is in part because the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater is under construction.

“There will be dozens of lighting displays and lawn and central green, trees lit up and down 116th Street,” Parks Director Tony Elliot said. “Winter Wonderland is Fishers’ tree lighting ceremony but really kind of a lighting of all the downtown area, which is cool.”

Components include ice carving demonstrations, and 5280 Bistro will be selling food. The first 100 people to arrive will receive free hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies.

“Santa’s arrival is the focus of the night, and together we will find a young person in the crowd and light the Nickel Plate district,” Elliot said.

Dave and Rae will perform live music throughout the event.

“Winter wonderland is Fishers’ quintessential kickoff to the holiday season,” Elliot said. “At Winter Wonderland, the name is reflective as a community we will light the lights to illuminate our holiday season. It is far more than lighting just a tree to try to connect with the community and engage in our smart, vibrant and entrepreneurial city.”
