Wait, didn't I see you at the Broad Ripple Art Fair on Saturday?

Wasn't that you singing along to Bobbie Lancaster's "Rock Me, Mama"? Or maybe that was you in line for Kettle Corn (and taking a few extra samples). 

No, wait, I think I saw you waiting as your kids had beyond-the-call-of-duty elaborate tattoos painted on their arms by the talented--and patient--volunteers. Or maybe that was you inside the Indianapolis Art Center throwing a pot or watching Heartland Film Festival shorts. 

Of course, that might have been you inside the pink flamingo costume at the Theatre on the Square booth.

Whatever the case, there was a lot going on on the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center this weekend.  If you were there, let us know your reaction to this year's event.

Or, beyond the BRAF, tell what else you might have seen, heard or otherwise experienced this weekend.

  • Play, film, fair, book
    After many years of repeatedly enjoying the movie version, finally saw the stage version of â??Oliver!â?? and have to conclude that it is not a very good show. The movie wisely elminated the weaker numbers and characters and more fully developed the important relationships. The production at Footlite Musicals was also not particularly well-staged, but itâ??s always enjoyable to see community performers having a good time on stage, and the young boy who played Oliver was quite charming.

    â??City Islandâ?? is a very, very enjoyable movie with an excellent cast â?? the audience loved it. And we had a great time strolling through the Broad Ripple Art Fair, although we didnâ??t purchase anything. Finally reading Glen David Gold's "Carter Beats the Devil."
  • Carter
    Fernando,
    Haven't thought about "Carter Beats the Devil" in a while. Really liked that one. Now I'm off to see if Gold has done anything since."
    Enjoy,
    Lou
  • Loved It
    So much talent at the fair this year. I could hardly believe it!
  • Smashing Talent
    Absolute great group of artists at this year's event. I found a few new favorites and had a wonderful time exploring the grounds of the IAC!
  • Two days for the price of one
    Great idea on the get in free the 2nd day-we spent 2 great days at the fair throwing pots, enjoying the free kids' art activities, eating kettle korn, enjoying the music, and buying art. The volunteers were so friendly.
  • Live music
    This was my first year performing at the Broad Ripple Arts Fair. "Trio ConPaz" was called in to replace Mumbai Taxi the day before due to their keyboardist going into the hospital (hope he is OK!). We had a lot of fun and it was a wonderful experience. It was very difficult to stand there singing while all the delicious smells wafted over to the stage! My stomach was grumbling! =)
  • Art for the not so wealthy
    As usual the fair was a fantastic event. The sounds, the smells, and the visual impact well worth the twelve bucks. Only wish they would bring in vendors that can make more affordable art work available to us "commonors". I can hardly believe what some of these folks were charging for some of their pieces!!!
  • Around the World in 80 Days
    We saw "Around the World in 80 Days" at the IRT yesterday in what I think was the final show of its run, and we were pleasantly surprised. Very talented cast, and the show was hilarious while still family-friendly.

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
