Fall is in the air, but let’s keep your cold cash in your wallet this week, shall we? Indeed Indianapolis is an EXTREMELY affordable city to visit and you need no further proof than the line up of FREE family friendly events all going on now through the weekend.
Too cold to walk the neighborhood? Check out the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ Safe Night Halloween Trunk-or-Treat. From 5-7 pm TONIGHT October 31st, head to the Dow AgroSciences Celebration Park. Kids 12 and under, accompanied by an adult, are welcomed to snag plenty of candy and free goodies, too! Greenwood Park Mall and Castleton Square Mall will both be offering FREE Safe Trick-or-Treating tonight, too.
Target Free Family Night at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis provides you the opportunity to visit our world class, top ranked Children’s Museum without paying a dime. The first Thursday of every month, the museum offers free admission from 4-8 pm. In addition to the museum’s amazing exhibits, there are special themed activities. This month, on November 1st, see how kids are Making a Difference – both throughout history and today!
Your mama told you it wasn’t a good idea, but here in Indianapolis “Playing in the Streets” is the kick off for the Spirit & Place Festival. From 6-9 pm on Friday November 2nd, head to the Harrison Center for the Arts for plenty of FREE art, music, performances, and more. Check out all of the details here. AND there are a host of other free events as a part of the Spirit & Place Festival, November 2nd – 11th. Another of my favorites is the Musical Machinery Performance of Pierre Bastien at the Central Library on Saturday November 3rd from 3-5 pm. It’s FREE but a limited number of tickets are available so score yours now.
Open a dialogue about social media with your kids. On Sunday November 4th, The Indianapolis Public Library is sponsoring a FREE 2:30 pm performance of “Facebook me” by the Young Actors Theatre and Start Strong Indy at The Clowes Auditorium of the Central Library. This play will entertain your family and provide a strong platform to discuss the challenges of living in an interactive world.
