New Special Occasion Lighting System for Downtown Evansville

The DOWNTOWN EVANSVILLE - Economic Improvement District (EID) announces the installation of a new lighting system to enhance a key shopping and dining corridor in Downtown Evansville.

“We’re excited to share this new system with our businesses, residents and the whole community,” said Josh Armstrong, EID President. “Lighting is an important component in creating a distinct destination for evening activities. We’re looking forward to programming the system to encourage business and visitors to the heart of our downtown.”  

Lighting Details
The lighting system consists of over 200 anchored programmable LED spotlights aimed into over 100 trees planted on Main Street from Second Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. The lights are programmed via an app to allow for unlimited colors and patterns to celebrate holidays, sporting events, or welcome conventions. When not programmed with color, the system will provide additional lighting to spotlight the trees and add additional light to the area.
