The first Indianapolis Fall Carnival took place from October 9 to 12, 1900. The objective of the carnival was to draw visitors to Indianapolis by emulating small-town street fairs. Featured in it were parades, sideshows and races. The Circle, illuminated at night with colored bulbs, attracted visitors to booths featuring local exhibitors such as Bell Telephone Company. The company displayed telephones that offered local and long-distance connections. Appears in Destination Indiana
