What to do this Weekend

What To Do This Weekend 4.13-4.15

Friday the 13th is UPON US and I am bound and determined to see The Quiet Place to celebrate this weekend!  If you aren’t into a little scare, we’ve compiled a list of not so frightening activities to do around the Indiana & Illinois areas.


Friday, April 13th

Threads Market at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds is a new boutique style event built around cute clothes, great accessories, jewelry, and spa style bath & body. Basically if you can wear it or put it on your body then this is the market for it! Vendors will all be small businesses (no direct sales like Lularoe, Plunder, etc) and a few fabulous handmade goods will be included. You’ll also find some styles for the babies and the men in your life plus delicious food, a cash bar, and other surprises.
