I cannot believe how fast summer is winding down. Everyone I know is getting back into their “fall” routines and I’m still trying to squeeze in every last bit of summer fun!
Tomorrow is our very own event, the Magical House Party – Casa Madrigal Event at The Parks at Glen Ridge neighborhood. We have a ton of Encanto-themed activities and we’ll even be giving away a bike!
Snap a family photo inside the Magical (Model) Home with Pyatt Builders, Make Mirabelle’s glasses and pick a free book with Early Learning, Sing along with the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, and so much more! Don’t forget to reserve your tickets so we know you’ll be there!
We’ve had an amazing time visiting the Indiana State Fair this year, and can’t wait to do again next summer. There’s still time to get out to the fairgrounds to enjoy some last minute fair fun–whether it be for a date night, a mom’s’ night, or spending the day with the family.
I think my favorite new additions to the fair this year were the Glass Barn update, the selfie stalls, and the pickle pizza. What was your favorite part of the fair this year? Email and let me know!
