plans for Fletcher Park will be presented and the possible sculptures from our recent Request for
Proposal sponsored by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and The Arts Council of Indianapolis will be

Pop-Up Edition will show a movie before the festivities end.
New Day Meadery will serve wine by the glass as a way of celebrating their recent expansion and
relocation of their production facility within the CCIC. Additionally, Near Eastside food truck
Duos will be on hand to provide food and beverages throughout the evening.
