The first month of 2012 has flown by, and usually by mid-winter things are pretty quiet in central Indiana. However, 2012 is no ordinary winter in Indianapolis!
Being from Oklahoma, I’ve been a football fan as long as I can remember, but I didn’t become a pro football fan until I moved to Indiana in the 1990s. This past Colts season was heartbreaking for lots of fans, but the excitement of Indianapolis hosting Superbowl XLVI has helped ease the pain. I won’t be attending the big game, unless “attending” means sitting in my living room with friends and lots of snacks, but just being this close makes me feel part of the action.
Conner Prairie is getting in on the excitement of Super Bowl XLVI, too. Even though downtown Indy is a good distance from Fishers, we hope to be able to welcome not only out-of-town guests, but lure back some of the locals with our Super Cars exhibit
Feb. 2-5, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Check out Conner Prairie’s homepage for details about this special weekend activity. And for those who mourn the end of football season, good news! Our Science Lab is hosting The Science of Football
during the months of February and March. Come learn all about the game and extend the season just a little longer.
Don’t forget about us after the big game, though. We still have our indoor exhibits open, including Discovery Station
, the new Science Lab exhibit, and Craft Corner
. If the kids are getting restless during February and March, The Welcome Center has plenty to offer to relieve cabin fever!
