The lights will be turned on for the first time at 6 p.m. Friday. The ceremony will include carolers (5:30 to 6 p.m.), a brass quintet (6 to 7 p.m.) and music (7 to 8 p.m.), along with free hot chocolate throughout the evening. NPA will have an informational booth on their organization and the history of Seminary Park. Lights Over Seminary is one of multiple trolley stops that evening as part of First Friday. Other stops include Federal Hill Commons, Nickle Plate Arts, Hamilton County Artists Association and the downtown square.

“Seminary Park is a beloved asset in Noblesville, and it is wonderful to have the chance to shine a spotlight on it. The new additions and updated park layout will give our community a chance to get outside and create memories together this holiday season,” Noblesville Economic Development Specialist Aaron Head said.
