Night of Lights flips the switch on the holiday season

Holiday News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – After the Night of Lights celebration was held without guests last year, families gathered in downtown Fort Wayne for the much anticipated event Wednesday evening.

The Night of Lights is one of many activities taking place during this week’s HolidayFest from the Downtown Improvement District. Classic displays like Santa and his Reindeer, the northern lights at Aunt Millie’s and the “Merry Christmas” wreath were turned on starting at 5:45 p.m. The lighting wrapped up with a fireworks show at Parkview Field at 8 p.m.

“We don’t have an exact number [of attendees], but we believe it was one of the biggest, if not the biggest crowd ever,” said Rick Zolman, events and programing manager at the Downtown Improvement District.

The full schedule of the Night of Lights can be found below.

A sensory-friendly Night of Lights were also offered for the first time at Promenade Park.

More information on the Night of Lights and HolidayFest can be found on the Downtown Improvement District’s website.
