It’s hard to believe we’re 1/12 of the way through 2011. 31 days have come and gone. 334 remain. What you do with them is up to you . . . but Indy’s Queen of Free certainly hopes that at least a few of them are full of FREE (or at least discounted) fun in Indianapolis. Here are a few events taking place this week alone designed to save you money and provide an amazing amount of fun.
Tuesday, February 1st: Community Tuesday at White River State Park. A variety of discounts abound at the major attractions – the IMAX Theater, the Eiteljorg, the Indiana State Museum, and the NCAA Hall of Champions are all offering discounts. Go here to check out the specifics.
Wednesday, February 2nd: The Indiana State Library regularly offers free workshops and seminars which both educate and entertain. On Wednesday from 10-11 AM, learn more about Theodore Dreiser. You need your Hooiser card revoked if you don’t know who he is. Google it.
Thursday, February 3rd: Target Family Free Family night at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis celebrates Black History Month on Thursday evening from 4-8 PM. Enjoy free family activities ranging from story telling to quilt block making and even science activities, all of which celebrate the accomplishments of African Americans. Target Family nights can be busy but since admission is free, concentrate on one area of the museum instead of trying to cover the entire experience.
Saturday, February 5th: From 5-7 PM, celebrate the opening of Black Pearls – a “showcase of African and African-American artists and themes” – at Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens. Hands-on family activities will be a part of the exhibit on Saturdays and Sundays all month long.
Don’t let another month pass you by. There’s plenty to do in Indianapolis without spending a dime. Don’t forget that you can always go here to check out the free events calendar, no matter the day of the month or the year.
