In Indiana we're big on tradition as anyone can tell who has attended the Indianapolis 500. From the singing of Back Home In Indiana to winner's drinking milk, traditions keep travelers coming back, and one not to miss this fall is the Indy Irish Fest on September 14- 17. You don't have to be Irish to join this annual tradition - just gather family and friends for a festive time of music, Irish cultural events, exhibits, games, and fun in Downtown Indianapolis at Military Park.
