Some of my best memories from my school years are from the birthday parties of my best friends. My parents also knew how to throw some of the best birthday parties for kids, so it’s no surprise that I’m always planning ahead and looking for the best birthday party places near me. Here’s a list of some of the best birthday party venues, best Indianapolis cake decorators, best Indy children’s entertainers and more. Cheers, and happy birthday!
