It’s the FINAL stretch until you sleigh Christmas, so why not take a break from wrapping gifts this weekend and kickback with some holiday fun!
Friday, December 22nd & Saturday, December 23rd
Enjoy a ride through the lights of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and downtown Indianapolis. Listen to holiday music while riding in their vintage-style trolley featuring large windows for viewing and padded seats. A great way make special memories with family and friends! Tickets just $18 per seat, leave the driving to them and book with the Indy Holiday Lights Tour.
Don’t forget to pack in your car this year and go through Deming Park. My family always makes it a yearly tradition to pick up hot chocolate and check out all the lights put on by local clubs and businesses in Terre Haute. This year’s first place winner was the Wabash Valley Master Gardner’s. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Christmas in the Park for yourself, you still have time! The lights will be up until January 1st.
Friday & Saturday enjoy the D.I.Y. Rentals indoor ice skating rink, Winter Wonderland. Bring the entire family out for a night of ice skating, train rides, crafts, pictures with Santa and more. The D.I.Y. Rentals Winter Wonderland is an inside Holiday playground and its only here for a limited time! This weekend, Dec. 21—Dec. 23, proceeds will be split with Clothe A Child. ($10 per person)
Celebrate the New Year in style for our final weekend, Dec. 28– Dec. 31 ($10 per person) Admission includes—skate rentals, 1 train ride, 1 craft per room, and a visit with a special friend (take your own picture). They are open 6pm-10pm.
It’s hard to believe ONE in SIX Hoosiers are facing food insecurity-that number is over ONE MILLION in Indiana, but this holiday season Tapper’s Arcade Bar in Indianapolis has teamed up with Short’s Brewing Company and Starcut Ciders to help fight hunger in Indiana in a way that makes it easy for you. Starting December 12th we will tap one new Short’s/Starcut beer each day for TWELVE days (12 Beers of Shortsmas). Each beer will be SIX dollars and we’ll give THREE dollars from each beer to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana Inc.! Yeah, you just show up, buy a beer, play some free arcade games… and you’re helping! You’d do that anyway, but now you can feel great about it!
