Stuck for something to do this weekend? Start with one of Indy's most popular festivals, consider a concert among the critters, and then dig deeper into this week's A&E priority list.

Indian Market and Festival

June 22-23

Military Park

The Eiteljorg Museum of Indians and Western Art turns its back yard into a multifaceted festival grounds with music, storytelling, crafts (including pick bracelets inspired by the “Guitars” exhibition), dance (five-time world champion hoop dancer Tony Duncan) and more. A preview party Friday night includes a Southwest buffet, social time with artists, a chance to get in early bids on the work, and passes for the entire weekend. Details here

AACTfest

Through June 22

Center for the Performing Arts

Soon, some of the top names in musical theater will be either entertaining or honored at the Center for the Performing Arts (watch for more next week). This week, though, the center will house largely anonymous community theater creators from around the United States. They’ll be here for the American Association of Community Theaters’ annual conference. Why should you care? Well, while most theater companies go on summer hiatus, this is a chance to choose from 12 shows being performed—from a Grapevine, Texas, production of “Spring Awakening” to a Parkersburg, W.Va., take on “Tuesdays with Morrie.” Details here.

Zoolapalooza Concert Series

June 21

Indianapolis Zoo

The annual series returns with the first of five Friday night concerts free to zoo members and included with regular zoo admission. This year, the shows move to the open tent of the Party Pavilion, include Sun King beer sampling, shifting food options and free rides (on one of the actual rides, not the animals) until 7. First up, a June 21 performance by The Tides, accented by luau lettuce wraps and Hawaiian snow cones. Details here.

  1. The Walgreens did not get a lot of traffic. It was not located on the corner of the intersection, and not really visible from Emerson. Meanwhile the CVS there is huge and right on the corner. I am guessing a lot of people drove by a million times and never knew the Walgreens was there. Although, with the new Walmart market going in, that area could really see a lot of increase in traffic soon.

  2. You folks don't have a clue. There is a legal way to enter this country and to get aid. This left unchecked could run us to ruin quickly. I also heard that 'supporters' were getting major $$ to take them in? Who's monitoring this and guess who pays the bill? I support charitable organizations... but this is NOT the way to do it!

  3. Apparently at some time before alcohol has been served at the fair. The problem is that beer or wine used to be a common drink for people before soft drinks and was not thought to be that unusual. Since many folks now only drink to see how much they can drink or what kind of condition they can end up in it becomes more problematic. Go to Europe and its no big deal just as if you had sodas of milk to drink everyday. Its using common sense that is lacking now days.

  4. To address the epic failure of attracting race fans to both the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 would take too much of my time to write. Bottom line Boles is clueless and obviously totally out of touch with the real paying fan base. I see nothing but death spin coming for the Brickyard, just like Indy. Get somebody in a place of power that understands what race fans want.

  5. I am a race fan through & through. It doesn't matter if it's Indy cars or Nascar. I love a great race. I go to several other tracks each year and you can see the entire track. I know Indy has tradition, but fans want to see the entire race. I sit in the Penthouse, am almost 60 years old, and would like to see a better TV screen in turn 1 so you can see the entire race. Then I think Indy needs to install an escalator so us old folks can make it up to the Penthouse and down again if we want more options to purchase food and drinks. Just a race fans opinion. Lights won't make the race any better, but you might be able to see the TV better at night. Turn 1's screen needs replaced with a better and bigger screen.
