Has this been a great winter in Central Indiana so far, or what? Yes, we’ve had a few very cold days and some rain, but think about it. Almost no snow so far, and what we have gotten didn’t stick around very long. We never even had to pull out the snow shovel! Last year, we faced ice storms, inches of fallen snow that stuck around for weeks, and freezing temperatures that went on for days. This year… the Super Bowl! Go figure.
All this nice weather has got us thinking about Spring and the many events and activities available as summer approaches. But what about now? Other go bowling, or to the movies, there’s not much to do in Fishers, Plainfield, or Carmel, right?
Actually, no, not right. There are a number of activities held throughout Hamilton County, even in the dead of winter. Over the next few weeks, we will take a look at upcoming events and activities throughout the region. We’ll start with Noblesville.
- First, a tip of the hat to the person who came up with this very interesting event: the Kids Helping Kids Indoor Garage Sale, which will be held this Saturday, February 25th, from 10am – 1pm at the Forest Park Inn.
Coordinated by the Noblesville Parks Department, this event raises funds for children’s scholarships for Parks Department programs.
The garage sale offers a great incentive for kids to clean out their rooms, and what parent couldn’t use a little help with that?The sale is for kids, run by kids, and the kids keep the money they make! Tables are run by the kids, with a little assistance from mom or dad. All items for sale must be fun stuff: toys, games, dress-up attire, books, bikes, DVDs, etc. No furniture or clothes.
The cost to participate is $12/$17 for vendors (pre-registration is required, so act fast if you want to attend as a vendor). To register, or for more information, call the Noblesville Parks Department recreation office at (317) 770-5750.
General admission is $1 per person, and the admission and table rental fees go toward Noblesville Parks and Recreation program scholarships.
- On that note, registration for Noblesville’s youth summer day camp is now open, as of February 1st. Sessions fill up fast, so plan accordingly. Click here for more information and the Official 2012 Noblesville Summer Day Camp schedule!
In our next post, we’ll look at more Noblesville activities and events, including what’s coming up later this Spring. Were you aware that the City of Noblesville provides a variety of recreation programs year round? Check back next week to find out more.
