10 Must-Haves for a Summer Picnic

One of my husband’s and my favorite things to do in the summer is to see the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra play in the outdoor amphitheater at Conner Prairie, known as Symphony on the Prairie. We bring a picnic, lawn chairs and a blanket and curl up under the stars for a night of beautiful music.

To be honest what I enjoy as much as the music and atmosphere, is our picnic. Sometimes we go with another couple, always without children – love them dearly, but let’s be honest – sometimes kids can spoil a romantic date.

Indiana State Fair

If you missed my money-saving tips this morning on Indianapolis’ B105.7, here’s the rundown!

  • I love the Indiana State Fair, and there is NO reason to think you can’t make it a very affordable day. A couple of discounts to share with you …
    • When you visit Meijer and purchase $20 in Fall Creek apparel, you’ll get a Catalina at the register. Bring that to the State Fair on Monday, Aug 4th and get in to the fair for ½ price.
    • Also on Monday, pick up an Indianapolis Star and clip the State Fair coupon for FREE admission on Wed. August 6th!
    • $2 Tuesdays at the Fair are always good, where you’ll pay just 2 bucks for Sate Fair admission, food specials and rides.
    • And next Thursday Aug 7th all state employees AND military personnel and their families receive free State Fair admission. Find even more ways to save at the Indiana State Fair!
  • And lastly, another reminder about ½ price cheesecake today & tomorrow at Cheesecake Factory!
