Indianapolis Cultural Trail

What’s going on to celebrate the official opening of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, the 7.5 miles of downtown bike and pedestrian paths? Well, that depends on where you step onto it. Mucca Pazza, the funky “circus punk marching band,” will be performing at Fountain Square’s White Rabbit Cabaret. You’ll find a street festival at Indiana Avenue and St. Clair Street featuring live music and storytelling. A mock railroad camp will be found at the end of Massachusetts Avenue near Indy Reads Books. Sarah Fisher signs autographs in the Wholesale District. Sidewalk chalking is actively encouraged outside the Central Library. And lots more. For a full lineup of activities, click here.

Happy 200th birthday, Richard Wagner. And here’s the present being wrapped by Indianapolis Opera: a full-scale production of his opera “The Flying Dutchman,” with scenic design and direction by Joachim Schamberger, who was responsible for IO’s knockout production of “Faust” last season. The three-act opera concerns a shot ship and its cursed captain. The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra accompanies. Details here.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
