FISHERS, Ind. — After a 2-year hiatus, we’re taking FOX59 Morning News back on the road.
If you can remember back to pre-pandemic times long, long ago, we packed up twice in the summer of 2019 to do live shows at Fishers’ Nickel Plate District Amphitheater and the Greenwood Amphitheater.
This time we’re headed to Conner Prairie in Fishers, one of the country’s most visited outdoor museums and Indiana’s first Smithsonian-affiliated museum.
Come watch us live from 7 to 10 a.m., meet the anchors, and check out some of the behind-the-scenes production that goes into FOX59 Morning. The event is free and open to the public.
After the show, you can spend the day at Conner Prairie for free. Everyone who attends will get admission to the grounds when the show ends at 10 a.m.
There will be plenty of on-site entertainment, including goat yoga, food and drink demonstrations, and performances by the Hamilton Southeastern High School dance and cheer squads.
The Indianapolis Indians are bringing Rowdie, their mascot, and inflatables for kids.
Jack’s Donuts is providing free coffee and donuts, while supplies last.
Throughout the show, we’ll introduce you to new and unique things to do this summer and beyond throughout Hamilton County.
You’ll learn about new exhibits coming to Conner Prairie, including one highlighting the history of Black settlers moving to Indiana, plus upcoming events like the hot air balloon festival, Symphony on the Prairie, fall and Halloween attractions and 21-plus events.
Chairs and tables will be set up near the stage area, but you’re also welcome to bring your own lounge chairs and blankets to sit on in the lawn.
Plenty of free parking is available the day of the event in Conner Prairie’s two middle parking lots by the Welcome Center. Use the map below as a reference, and you can download a larger copy here.
Please avoid parking in areas reserved for employees, as well as the smaller, private lot marked on the map by number 48.
Guests should enter through the Symphony on the Prairie gate, indicated on the map near “1859 Balloon Voyage.”
Can’t wait to see you there!
