Celebrate the start of the new school year with games and activities at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, 3000 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis. Best part: admission is free -- because the event is scheduled during Target Family Free Night on Thursday, 6 August.
After meeting Indiana Fever basketball star Tamika Catchings and mascot Freddy Fever, families can enjoy fun activities for children of all ages relating to back-to-school AND see the museum’s permanent exhibits. For kindergartners, a yellow school bus will be parked outside to practice getting on and off before the first day of school. All kids can learn to dance to Zumba, a fusion of Latin music that doubles as fun and fitness.
Families should plan to arrive early to see Catchings (between 4 and 5 p.m.). The back-to-school event will run from 4-8 p.m.
