I love to promote my town, Zionsville, Indiana. Zionsville is a Colonial Village just northwest of Indianapolis. It has a brick Main Street lined with charming stores and restaurants. The people of Zionsville care and are involved in their community. This spirit is reflected in the many festivals and events throughout the year as well as in the support of the 5 star schools. My two favorite festivals are the Country Market in May and the Fall Festival in September. The Country Market features more than 150 artisans from all over the country. White tents cover Main Street for a lovely day of great shopping and fun food. The second event, the Fall Festival takes place the weekend following Labor Day. It begins on Friday and concludes Sunday afternoon. There is an old fashioned parade that surprisingly lasts over an hour. Floats, high school bands, horses, cheerleaders all delight the onlookers. Children enjoy filling their bags with candy thrown as the parade passes by. Bands play in the gazebo, fair food is served (elepant ears, anyone?) and carnival rides light the sky. Zionsville's vision is to be a town surrounded by parks. It is well on its way to that goal with a myriad of parks now wrapping its borders. The population of over 10,000 fully uses the parks for games of football, sand volleyball, skateboarding, running and nature walks. I have been a resident of Zionsville for more than 20 years and actually am the twitter voice of Zionsville. Follow me @Zionsvilletweet for info on current events and happenings in Zionsville.
