Holidays in Indianapolis

With the snow over the weekend, it is looking like winter is here a bit early. We love the look of the season. There’s so much to do, though! Finals! Shopping! Family Get-togethers! Holiday celebrations!

What’s that? Want some more? Here’s a few ideas for you to try out this month…

Library branches are hosting a program called Holiday Origami. You’ll get a chance to get folding during this program that’s presented by Art with a Heart. You’ll learn basic folds and create your own holiday masterpieces.

Every evening, Wednesday through Sunday during the month of December, surround yourself with the magic and beauty of the holiday season as the Indianapolis Zoo hosts its 45th year of Christmas at the Zoo. Details are here.

The Children’s Museum has a great holiday celebration every winter. Check out Jolly Days at the Children’s Museum this year!

One of our favorite things to do is climb into the car and go look at the lights. Several neighborhoods are locally famous for their light shows. There’s Christmas on Victory in Carmel, and of course, the HUGE display at the Reynolds John Deere dealership in Noblesville at 126th and SR 37. Make sure to allow extra time. Lines can be VERY long!

Super Bowl XLVI

All eyes will be on Indy for the next week. There will be thousands of people from all over the country coming to your hometown to participate in the festivities.  While the majority of us will not be in Lucas Oil for the big game there are plenty of things to do and most of them are free. Whether you are a sports fan, music lover, a gamer, or a fan of the arts there is something for you.

The heart of the madness will be the Super Bowl Village that opens January 27th. It will be crazy down there, but there are many park and ride options. You should plan ahead,though, if you want to enjoy the festivities. Get out there and take advantage of it because this could be a once in a lifetime experience.

The Indianapolis Super Bowl Page has all the information you need to plan your trip. It also has a wealth of information about all the events that will take place during Super Bowl Week. In addition check out the initiatives organized by the host committee to enrich and improve Indianapolis. From 46 murals
that were painted on buildings downtown to the community effort that planted 2012 trees on the near eastside. There really is a lot more than just football to the entire event.
