Friday fun: It’s beach season in Fishers

Nothing says “Welcome, summer!” quite like hitting the beach on Memorial Day weekend—regardless of Indiana’s ocean-free status.

Saxony Beach in Fishers opens for the season Saturday, offering landlocked Hoosiers a chance to usher in sand season in their own back yard.

Free and open to the public, the 300-foot beach is situated on a 20-acre man-made lake just north of 131st Street in Hamilton County’s Saxony development.

Lifeguards watch over a roped-off swimming area, and private vendor Freedom Kayak Adventures rents kayaks, stand-up boards and paddleboats on weekends and holidays for folks looking to explore the rest of Saxony Lake.

The beach proved popular in its inaugural season last year, said Saxony Marketing Manager Candi McKinnies-Shreve.

“We were at or near maximum capacity almost every day,” she said.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Saturday, Sunday and Monday, then every day beginning June 1.

A free ice cream social and concert is planned for noon to 3 p.m. at nearby Witten Park, with frozen treats from local Sundaes Homemade Ice Cream and music from The Bishops.

What’s your Memorial Day weekend tradition? Rumor has it there’s some kind of race planned?
