Rick Bramwell: Failed outdoors trip leads to far greater end

(Continued)

u u u

According to the DNR, the free Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience has carved a niche on the state’s September calendar as it enters its fifth year.

On Sept. 21-22, that tradition reawakens at Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis and sets the stage for another.

Traditional Arts Indiana, which debuted last year, will expand its on-site offerings. Drum makers and musicians, a hoop net maker, a plant tradition bearer and a limestone crafter and gravestone maker will teach participants about their crafts.

TAI is just one of more than 50 outdoor activities offered free. Just about everything from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing and kayaking is offered at no cost to participants. All equipment is provided. All activities, parking and admission are free.

Participants can bring their own food, although food booths will be available. To view a video of last year’s highlights, visit http://youtu.be/knvmmJ8DquQ.

The Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day that weekend. The goal is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried.

Online advance registration at hoosieroutdoorexperience.IN.gov is requested. Watch there or Facebook.com/HoosierOutdoorExperience for updates and details.
