The Indianapolis Cultural Trail celebrates its official completion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday. The Get Down On It weekend celebration kicks off at City Market near Market and Alabama streets at 3:45 p.m., when U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will join local officials and trail representatives to formally open the eight-mile trail. On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., organizers plan 85 free events along the path, including an exotic-animal petting zoo, hot air balloons, dancing lessons and live music.
