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.

Clowes Hall

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.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
