While I will be out of town this year, I have had the privilege of going a few years ago and we had a ball!IMG_2543 IMG_2541 You can see a full list of activities here, but some more highlights will include Lady Liberty and George Washington leading songs, Franklin D. Roosevelt hosting a fireside chat and Abraham Lincoln fielding guests’ questions.

Also open throughout the day are the indoor experiences, including Create.Connect, Discovery Station and Craft Corner and the store.

So, looking for something to do while the kids are out of school? Head to Conner Prairie and live out some history.
