Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis was brightly lit in the days leading to Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This photo was taken at 2:00am in the hours just before Super Bowl XLVI 46 took place between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy. The large letters “XLVI” stood just to the left of the field of view of this photo, signifying the 46th Super Bowl taking place in Indianapolis.
Indianapolis was a great host city for Super Bowl XLVI and fortunately, the weather cooperated in the days leading up to the big game. People from all over poured into Indianapolis and enjoyed the Super Bowl Village, fully equipped with zip lining, the NFL Experience, food, drinks and more. The Hampton Inn in downtown Indianapolis was transformed into the Bud Light Hotel Indianapolis and hosted several bands and activities. Downtown Indianapolis turned into one big party in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. Many of the downtown streets were closed to traffic and people crowded the streets along Maryland St., Meridian St., Illinois St. and more to celebrate Indianapolis as the host city for a Super Bowl for the very first time.
