What We’re Really Doing This Weekend: Staff Picks
Where to check out Gen Con costumes, what to see at the State Fair, a winery concert, and more.
There are new traditions and rites of passage taking root here, from reading (and spotting the local landmarks in) John Green’s novel to hovering in the helium-filled balloon over Conner Prairie. So we created a fresh set of iconic local experiences—“The New Indy Must-Do List.”
Going to the movies is one of the best things you can do on a Friday night. Not paying for the movie would only make the night that much better. As part of downtown’s First Friday art walk every month, Heartland Truly Moving Pictures shows uplifting independent films—for free! The next event, tonight from 6 to 10 p.m., is even more special: The lineup will preview this month’s Heartland Film Festival with a screening of an entire short film and select trailers from the upcoming competition.
