Thumbs up: Downtown does Christmas bliss
City sidewalks dressed in holiday style? Who can resist a carriage ride around the Circle all decked out in lights? What fun! Seeing Jimmy Stewart and company in It's a Wonderful Life on the big screen at the Circle Centre Mall's United Artists Theatre? And all the proceeds go to a good cause - furthering downtown beautification efforts? Well, that might provide the warmest, enriching holiday feeling of all. Give it a try Thursday, Dec. 6. A silent auction, beginning at 5:15 p.m., will precede the screening, which is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Organizers with Indianapolis Downtown Inc. promise the auction will feature plenty of opportune shopping, so attendees may manage to hit a holiday trifecta: contributing to the greater good, having fun and picking notching some lines off their gift lists.
