On Friday morning, the Economic Improvement District started setting up holiday décor on Main Street and several connecting streets in downtown Evansville, Indiana.

Officials say a focal point of the decorations this year will be the archway at 2nd Street and Main Street, where two 12-foot-tall nutcrackers will be on display. Large traditional Christmas lights are also being added to the archway for the 2020 display of decorations.

On Saturday, Nov. 7, Santa's Mailbox will also be unveiled at 3rd Street and Main Street at 3:00 p.m.

On Nov. 19, the City of Evansville will unveil and light its annual tree at 5:30 p.m. in front of the Ford Center.

Following that, the 10' lighted tree and 12' snowflake will be installed on Dec. 4, along with illuminating trees on Riverside from Court to Walnut.

Then, on Dec. 5, a new children-themed installation entitled "Santa's Helpers Alley" will be unveiled in the alley of the 200 block of Main Street.

Finally, the newest lighting installation of a chandelier tree lighting will be unveiled on Dec. 11 at 2nd Street and Main Street at 4:00 p.m.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
