Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

Welcome to the Indiana State Fair

While celebrating the year of the dairy cow at the Indiana State Fair during the next two weeks, be sure to stop by and visit Team WRSP in the Exposition Hall by the Midway!

While at the Fair, White River State Park will have park information and Indiana travel guides and maps to pick up! The Department of Tourism booth is your one stop shop for both WRSP guides and great Indiana information.

We will be there every day through Monday and then again next Friday and Saturday, giving you plenty of opportunities to come say hello!

As always, surveys will be available for WRSP fans to win free concert tickets or tickets to our many attractions. And of course, if you feel like dropping off some deep fried Oreos when you visit, we wouldn’t mind that either.

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

Florence + the Machine at The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park

A sold out show brought thousands of people out to the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn July 29 to experience Florence & the Machine.

The Walkmen were the perfect band to warm up the stage with upbeat songs to get the audience on their feet dancing.

Florence awed the crowd in her long flowing dress and vocals that sounded as though one was casually listening to her CD.

Some of the songs performed were Dog days are over, Shake it up, What the water gave me, and others from her newest album.

The energy provided from the band was easily seen as Florence pranced and danced onstage and even offstage throughout the crowd.

A grateful Florence even gained a small treasure box from a fan before leaving the stage.

This is the second time Florence & the Machine have joined us and we hope that next year we can be gifted with their presence again for all that missed it!

HART performing Othello for Shakespeare on the Canal

HART performing Othello for Shakespeare on the Canal at White River State Park

Love, deception, and envy were all in the air last weekend as the Heartland Actors Repertory Theatre (HART) brought their magic to Celebration Amphitheater at White River State Park for Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy of Othello: The Moor of Venice.”

With performances on Friday and Saturday evening with a matinee on Sunday, HART’s team brought Shakespeare enthusiasts and first-time theatergoers to the free show in the Park on the banks of the White River.

“Othello” centers around the title character, played by HART’s David Alan, who is married to Desdemona. A vicious Shakespearian love triangle is created between Othello, his wife, and Othello’s right-hand man Cassio.

Envy, the “green-eyed monster,” is the central theme of this play, and is carried through during the entire performance. Although there is obvious jealousy between Othello and Cassio for Desdemona’s affections, more subtle displays of envy are also seen between Cassio and Othello’s ensign, Iago. This adds another layer of human emotion to the tragic show.

Park guests at each performance were given chairs to sit on and were welcome to bring food and drinks for a picnic. Additionally, the Cajun food truck Some of This, Some of That was parked on the Washington Street Bridge next to the performance, offering audience members drinks and sandwiches during the three hour production.

Past Shakespeare on the Canal performances by HART include “The Merchant of Venice,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona.”

Little Red Door, an agency which provides support in dealing with the struggles that come with cancer, came out to the Historic Military Park last Saturday July 14, for the Big Red Bash.

A variety of people came out to support the event and brought several fun activities to the park such as Radio Disney, zip line,  and health screening services.

Also happening at the Big Red Bash was a food truck rally which brought out  several food trucks, such as Hubbard & Cravens coffee and tea, NY slice, Der Pretzel Wagen, Seoul Grill, and many more!

One big part of this event was trying to break the world record of largest zumba class, which didn’t end up happening but the class brought a whomping 2,777 people out to get a small work out!

It was a pleasure having everyone out to support this agency and hope to see you zumba again!

Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 12th, 2012 | inwhiteriver.com

After another sweltering, dry day  in Indianapolis, the sun set and the lights at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park went up for the Of A Revolution (O.A.R.) concert on July 12th. The perennial favorite for the Park brought in a huge crowd, and Team WRSP had a ton of fun with the event.

The opening act, Santa Barbara-based Rebelution, brought a reggae vibe to the Lawn and provided a great backdrop for the incoming fans as they gathered their chairs in preparation for the show. The band played songs from its new album, Peace of Mind.

When O.A.R. came on stage around 8:45, the crowd was ready to jam, and the band delivered. The band played a mix of crowd-pleasing classics like “Shattered” and “Love and Memories” coupled with high-energy songs from their newest album, King. The band also created a song for the 2012 London Olympics with rapper B.O.B. called “Champion.”

The highlight of the night for Team WRSP, however, was the encore performance, during which the band played “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker.” Audience members threw playing cards in the air to celebrate the concert.

O.A.R. formed when all of its members were in high school in Maryland and continued to grow to fame and success after the members attended Ohio State University.

The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park’s next show is British sensation Florence + The Machine on July 29th. Everyone heading out to the packed show should be sure to check out Team WRSP and WINDY for park information and a chance to win free tickets to the WRSP attractions and future shows!
