What’s Hot in July?!

Summertime always passes by so quickly!  It is hard to cram all the things you want to do into the 3-4 months that we have.   I am always looking for ways to maximize my summer experience, try new things, and continue my favorite summer traditions.  So, here are just a few things to do in and around Indy in the month of July!

Screen shot 2013-07-07 at 8.31.12 PMOne of my favorite summertime events in Indy is the First Friday Food Truck Festival.  On Friday July 4th The First Friday Food Truck Fest is throwing a special event with fireworks, Food Trucks (of course) and a performance by the band Rusted Root.  Tickets are $5 and are available at the door and online at www.oldnationcentre.com.  The event starts at 5:00 PM in the parking lot next to the Old National Centre.  If you have never been to a Food Truck Festival, you are in for a treat.  Over 30 different food trucks will be there which include some of my favorites, Nicey Treats, Little Eataly, and Mac Genie to name a few.  Live music, amazing food, and great weather are sure to make for an amazing evening in the city.

If you’re looking to get away from the city for a bit July 11th-13th is the Serendipity Festival in Cloverdale, Indiana.  The foundation of the festival is music and Yoga but it offers so much more.  The festival offers over 80 Yoga classes and workshops with teachers that include Suzanne Sterling, Mike Cohen, and Erica Ross.  There are also live musical performances from Matisyahu, Joshua Radin, and Donavon Frankenreiter.  Other attractions of the weekend include art installations, vendors, organic food, beer and wine, camping and much more.  Tickets are available at www.serendipityfest.com

Another one of my favorite things to do in the summertime is The Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Summer Nights Film Series.  The IMA projects a variety of great films on the screen in the outdoor amphitheater.  Gates open at 7 PM for picnicking and you can also explore the beautiful gardens or galleries before the film, which begins at 9:30 PM.  On July 11th they are screening Vertigo, July 18th Hook, and July 25th Flashdance.  Tickets are $10 to the public and $6 for members.

Finally, the event I am MOST excited about this July is on Saturday July 19th.  Reforming Indy is hosting a free fitness event for new clients ($10 donation for existing clients) at the Fishers studio.  We could not be more excited! Our newest fitness instructor Kelsey will be leading the ultimate fitness power hour.  Come sweat it out with your besties at 9:30 that morning and enjoy a light snack with a green juice afterwards.  It will be an awesome work out and an amazing way to meet some new friends.  We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
