Another big summer weekend is upon us.
The Indiana State Fair just opened at the fairgrounds (naturally) at 38th and Fall Creek Road, Indianapolis. Lots of music, exhibits, rides and fried food to be had there, for the next two weeks!
This is the weekend for MotoGP at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which also gives every Easy Rider in the region an excuse to roll out their bikes to cruise downtown — so be sure to watch out for some sweet rides.
And, yes, there’s something on stage, too. The Ricks-Weil Theatre Company has its second and last weekend of a locally produced and cast “The Sound of Music” through Sunday. Get details on their Facebook page.
Starting this next Thursday, IndyFringe — the Indianapolis Theatre Fringe Festival — takes over Mass Ave. downtown. Shows are $15 each this year, so getting a “fiver” ticket, five tickets for $60, is a really great deal.
Fringe fun actually starts Wednesday, with a free preview of the various acts at the Athenaeum (corner of Michigan/Mass/New Jersey) starting at 6 p.m. Each performer or troupe has two minutes to impress us, so things get a little wild.
As the Fringe continues through its first weekend, watch this site, our Facebook page and our Twitters (@PenGwenity and @IndyBeldar) for reports and reviews.
