Best Fireworks in Indiana? Downtown Indianapolis

In my opinion, the best place to be in central Indiana on July 4 at 10 pm is within a couple miles of Region's Bank Tower in Downtown Indianapolis. Oh sure, there are fireworks around Geist, in Plainfield, or in Franklin. Every city and town has its own fireworks display. We always went to the show…

Red Skelton Museum Grand Opening in Vincennes, Indiana

When you reach a certain age, there are certain names you know, or at least remember, even if it was what your parents watched. With only four channels on TV, you remember any mention of a TV show, actor, musician, or comedian. Even if it was your parents' time, you had to watch what they watched…

Lincoln Highway Adventure and Traveling Feast, Saturday, July 20

I don't care, I don't care, I don't care! I don't care if Illinois' license plates say they're the Land of Lincoln. They're not. Not! NOT! NOT! Indiana is the one true Land of Lincoln.

4th of July - Celebrate America Across the State!

I love the 4th of July. Part of it is because my birthday is the fifth so there was always a parade, festival and of course fireworks near my birthday. It was a built-in party every year. As I grow older (and birthdays mean less and less) I love the fourth for celebrating America and enjoying a…

North Manchester FunFest By the River, August 8 – 10, 2013

Years ago, I used to drive through North Manchester (Wabash County) on my way to and from Syracuse (Kosciusko County), and every so often would stop at the Dairy Queen along the way, when I thought my wife wouldn't find out. I also played Ultimate Frisbee there for a couple years, but the 40 minute…

Dale Chihuly Art in Fort Wayne

Chihuly is one of my favorite artists. As a kid, I remember traveling from Fort Wayne to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum, which has a large Chihuly sculpture in the center of the museum. I loved looking at the bright colors, interesting shapes, and unique designs. Chihuly became even more…
