10-26 to 10-27-2013 Pre-Halloween Weekend Festivities

Saturday afternoon we went over to the Historic Irvington Halloween Festival.  There were about 40 booths, plus the Indie Handicraft tent, food vendors and food trucks, lots of people in costume (including us), kids activities galore, and live music.  There were signs for a beer garden, and some people described where the booth was, but we never found it.
Washington and Audobon Streets are blocked off for this event.
It was on the chilly side, but partly sunny, and it brought out the crowds.
This might have been the best costume we saw at the festival - it's certainly the cutest!
We kept our costumes on, and later that night we went downtown to the Nightmare on Meridian Street Bar Crawl.  We didn't win any contests, but we did have several people tell us we had the best costumes of the night.  A bar crawl is definitely not our usual thing, but we had a ton of fun and ended up taking a cab home.  So, Sunday we decided to dust off our tandem bike and put it to use.  Google picked a pleasant route for us, taking us along Pleasant Run, through Fountain Square, and on the Cultural Trail.  It was nice - we saw the city from a new perspective, got a little exercise, and enjoyed lunch at Buca di Beppo.  (Read our review of lunch here.)
The Cultural Trail nicely crosses over I-65/I-70 to connect Fountain Square with downtown.

It was nice to see a family also enjoying a bike ride on this beautiful day.
Love this open public area on Georgia Street that Indy got, thanks to hosting the Superbowl!
The monument looked beautiful against the bright blue sky.
