More than 200,000 people visited the Super Bowl Village in downtown Indianapolis over three days last weekend. I was one of them and it was awesome! But I know that big crowds aren’t everyone’s idea of a good time. Fear not, you can still enjoy Super Bowl festivities without heading downtown — or even to Indianapolis.
Super Celebration Sites
Twenty Super Celebration Sites have been designated throughout Central Indiana and in cities such as Bloomington, Greenfield, Lafayette-West Lafayette, and Richmond. (For you fans of the ABC sitcom “The Middle,” French Lick is not one of the sites.)
Super activities range from site to site. Some highlights include:
An ice rink and toboggan run at Lions Park in Zionsville
Super Bash in Greenfield with family-friendly activities and Dr. Rock & the Rollers for the over 21 crowd
Jersey Jog 5K Fun Run at Glen Miller Park in Richmond (wear your favorite football jersey!)
Nightly football video game tournament at Metropolis Mall in Plainfield
Lady Gaga Monster Ball Pre-Super Bowl Party (with an official Lady Gaga Impersonator) in Lafayette
At each Super Celebration Site, football fans can visit one of 33 Super Cars, iconic Indy cars decked out to represent each of the 32 NFL teams and one Super Bowl car. The Giants and Patriots cars, along with the Super Bowl car, will stay in Super Bowl Village.
The remaining 30 cars will be on display for viewing and photo opportunities at Super Celebration Sites from February 2-5. Additional Indianapolis-area sites will also have Super Cars on display. A list of NFL team cars and the sites where they can be viewed can be found here.
