Join us for this free event at the Indiana State Museum in White River State Park to kick off the 2nd Annual White River Festival! We’ll celebrate the river (It’s our Water!) and explore this year’s Festival theme – the White River as an important drinking water source for Indianapolis. The Community Fun Day features art creations to make and take, science activities, and other hands-on activities that show off the White River! Come see how It’s your Water! As a bonus, the first 50 people to visit our booths will receive a free ticket into the State Museum for the day. AND the first 100 people will receive a free souviner Klean Kanteen steel pint up!
