INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (November 20, 2015) - For those looking for something to do Friday night, Mass Ave downtown is offering two options: one new, the other a favorite making a return.

First, new at the Athenaeum is the ALL-IN Block Party. This is free for all ages and offers those attending a chance to check out all the Athenaeum has to offer.

Friday evening from 4 – 7 p.m., organizers have free events set up, like trivia, a photo booth, raffles, massages, food from the Rathskeller and live music.

Kids can also try their hand at different art projects with help from Re-Generation Indy.

“I’d like to think that everybody’s been here once, but I don’t think everybody understands when you say the ‘Athenaeum’ they often think of the Rathskellar, which is alright, but it truly is its larger than that,” said Cassie Stockamp with The Athenaeum Foundation, Inc. “It is a building, a village full of many, many organizations and people.”

After that, it’s time for the annual Midnight Shopper on Mass Ave.

Until midnight, shoppers are invited to shops and restaurants along Mass Ave to kick off holiday shopping season.
