It’s almost October in Indiana, and as the Circle City gears up for a plethora of Autumn-inspired fun, get in the spirit with the second annual Fall Festival at Eagle Creek Park. This celebration has something for everyone here in Indianapolis; with a combination of live music, good food, and energetic games, the festival is one of the favorite things to do in Indianapolis in October.
On Saturday, October 3, 2009, grab some friends and make the scenic trip to beautiful Eagle Creek Park, where you can expect an activity-packed day from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The only cost is the park admission itself, which is $5 per car, and it’s an event that kids of all ages can enjoy. So be sure to bring along your Indianapolis children; they can have a great time of their own in the Kids’ Tent, which will feature plenty of games, gooey treats, and fun surprises.
If you want to throw in some Indianapolis education for good measure on your family outing, head over to the Earth Discovery Center, where your kids can enjoy learning about the earth and the environment, with a little help from some furry friends that are on hand at the Eagle Creek Park Fall Festival for your viewing and petting pleasure.
After you expand your minds at the Earth Discovery Center, prepare to expand your horizons as well with a trip to the Peace Learning Center. Here, you can relax as a family and learn some basic moves from the centuries-old, calm-inducing practice of yoga. And who could forget about the bounce house (just in case you need some rowdy fun to top off your peaceful experience at the Peace Learning Center).
And of course, what celebration of fall fun is complete without a hayride? Jump on at the Marina, for only $2 for adults and $1 for kids, and take a tour of picturesque Eagle Creek Park. The beginning of October is prime time for viewing the brilliant reds and golds of the leaves that blanket the park in the fall, along with the natural beauty of the peaceful Eagle Creek Lake.
The Fall Festival at Eagle Creek Park is one day of Indy fun that you won’t want to miss. For more information, visit the Eagle Creek Park website. And for more exciting Autumn and Halloween adventures, check out this comprehensive list of haunted places in Indiana.
