Hendricks County really has something for everyone this weekend: the active, the creative, the musical or the just plain crazy (hello, helicopter egg drop). The point is, there are so many opportunities to do what you love or try something new. For a full list of events this spring, visit our Events Calendar.
But let's get to what's on tap for this weekend.
What could be more fun than a night out with your girlfriends while enjoying some creativity, chocolate and wine? At 6 p.m. Friday, grab your friends and head out to uPaint Pottery Studio 1820 E. Main St., Plainfield for a unique ladies’ night out. Regular studio pricing applies (and includes snacks), which is $8 plus the cost of pottery. The studio will provide the chocolate, and you provide the whine (see what they did there?). No reservation or experience needed.
