Rachel’s Rundown: The best of what’s happening in and around Indy this weekend
Celebrate the Chinese New Year
The Children’s Museum
Grab the family and celebrate the year of the dog at the Children’s Museum on Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. You’ll discover why this traditional Chinese holiday is important and take part in some fun activities like building your own dog shadow-puppet, creating a red envelope for the Chinese New Year tradition of gift giving, and you can even have your name written in Mandarin by a Chinese calligraphy master between noon and 3 PM. Plus, you will get to take part in the excitement and pageantry of traditional Dragon and Lion dances and enjoy performances by Chinese folk dancers. This event is free with the cost of admission.
4th Annual Indy Bacon Fest
The Pavilion at Pan Am
Dig into bacon & pork inspired dishes from some of the best restaurants and chefs in Indy! Enjoy plenty of beer, several full bars and more. This is always a sell-out event, but if you want to beat the crowd you can get an early admission ticket. Or snag a VIP ticket, which allows you to get in ahead of the crowd and have your own VIP area. This event is 21+.
