I’m Katy Mann, a wife and a mother of four kiddos ages 9 and under. I love exploring the beautiful city of Indianapolis – especially during the holidays. During the month of December, I’m taking you along with our family as we load up the minivan and visit some of our favorite holiday attractions, Christmas events and new things to see. We’ll even take a few little road trips this year to show you Christmas in other cities.

We will add to this video collection daily throughout the month of December 2019.
