Christmas Is Coming to Carmel - Find Local Family Fun!

As Christmas is fast approaching, we’re all looking for ways to get into the holiday spirit. With family in town and kids on break, we’ve found some great ways for your family to join in on the holiday cheer!

Where To See Christmas Lights

Walkway of Lights – Marion
This light display has over 2.5 million lights spanning a two mile trail along the Mississinewa Riverwalk in Matter Park. This is one of the largest light displays in the Midwest.

Christmas at the Zoo – Indianapolis
The Indianapolis Zoo always does an amazing job with their light displays, and this year they are adding even more! For the last three years they have been voted in the top five of the USA Today’s 10 Best Zoo Lights; so make sure you check them out this holiday season!

Mooresville Christmas Light Tour – Mooresville
Pile up the car and follow the digital map as you take in the best lights that Mooresville has to offer. Vote on which house you like the best as you take part in this volunteer lead event. The event is put on to bring your family joy and help raise money for local nonprofit organizations.

Christmas Nights of Lights – Indianapolis
You won’t want to miss these lights! Synchronized to Christmas music played through your car stereo, take in over a million lights as they magically light up the night sky. The event is not meant to be scary, more so spooky. The trail lasts about 90 minutes so there is plenty to see! Fun for a night out with the kids or a get-together with friends. Enjoy festive beverages and snacks such as apple cider, caramel corn, and several alcoholic beverages to help get you into the fall spirit.

Where To See Santa

Some things to consider while going to visit Santa this Christmas. Social distancing policies are in place at most if not all of these locations as well as the wearing of a mask.

The Fashion Mall At Keystone – Indianapolis
Greenwood Park Mall – Greenwood
Hamilton Town Center – Noblesville
