AEP / powered by Indiana Michigan Power:


Light Up DWNTWN, powered by AEP, will be held on December 7 from 5 - 8 p.m. throughout Downtown Muncie. Galleries, restaurants and retailers invite you to spend the evening with them as we kick off the holiday shopping season.

The Community Tree Lighting ceremony will take place at Canan Commons (located in the 500 block of S. Walnut St.) at 6:00 p.m.. Join us as Santa Claus, Cardinal Charlie and the Muncie Fire Department light up the community holiday tree! Mayor Dennis Tyler and Ball State University President Geoffery Mearns will lead the countdown. 

Muncie Community School's Elementary School choirs will sing their Community Christmas Sing songs and lead the crowd in a carol, or two!

Canan Commons will also be the location for the Holiday Makers Market, featuring nearly 50 artists in a heated tent.

Kiddie Express train will be running. Fire pits will be lit for staying warm and making your own smores. Other concessions will also be available. Brian Blair's holiday sculptures will be on display at the park throughout the holiday season. 

We hope to see you there to celebrate with you and your family!

DWNTWN…The Next Muncie wishes you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous Holiday Season and New Year!
