There is always a moment of time that seems to signal the end of summer. For Indy, that moment begins with final weekend of Fringe and the start of the remaining home stands for the Indy Indian’s AAA baseball team.
Mass Ave sprang to life, with the local arts patrons flooding the sidewalks,migrating in packs, to hurry off to their next show(s). This year’s Fringe provided a nice selection of local and visiting artists the opportunity to show case their talents. Sadly, due to travel, I was unable to see as many shows as in the past;however, I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of the festival.
New to the Indy Arts scene was the first IN Light IN Indianapolis Light Festival, that brought the Canal to life with throngs of people coming out to experience a mixture of interactive and display only exhibits. While the torrential rain and flooding tried to dim out the lights, the weather cleared in time for the lights to shine.
With an unsuccessful season, full of many ups and downs, the Indy Indian’s put on a show in their remaining games at the Vic. As with any end season, the call ups and rehab assignments provided old and fresh faces to become mixed among the normal roster, all hoping showcase their skills to either make it back to the big show in September with the Pirates or position themselves for next season.
As the nights get a little shorter and the temperatures start to cool, Fall is slowly creeping in. Soon the leaves will changes, and the talk of the town with shift to football. Until then, I will try to soak up what’s left of summer, and enjoy Indy while in town for the time being.
