- Are you feeling jazzy: Then get over to The Palms in Plainfield on Friday evening for JAZZ at the Palms, featuring Pavel and Direct Contact. Chicago Music Awards nominee Pavel teams up with Henry Mancini's bass player and 2013 Indy Jazz Hall of Fame inductee Steve Dokken and Latin American Music specialists Raul Padro and Andre Artist to form an incredible and super entertaining Latin jazz group. Tickets are $15 a piece with the doors opening at 6 p.m., a free reception and cash bar from 7 to 8 p.m. and the concert beginning at 8 p.m.
- Race fans: Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg is the place to be this weekend if you're looking to whet your whistle before the Visit Hendricks County Night Before the 500 and the Indianapolis 500 next weekend. On the straight track is No Hatin' Drag Racing's first event of the season with drag racing starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday and running all the way through midnight. Then on the oval track, the USAC Silver Crown cars will be duking it out in the USAC Hall of Fame Classic. Gates open at 5 p.m. For more information about both events, click here.
- How about getting some exercise and enjoying the scenic countryside at the same time on Saturday? Then you'll be interested in Danville Parks & Recreation's 4th Annual Pedal for Parks, a family-friendly bike ride that will take you past five parks in Morgan and Hendricks counties (register by Friday, though!). Or perhaps the Community Safety Awareness 5K Run/Walk at Hummel Park in Plainfield is something you'd enjoy.
