2. 24th Annual Indian Market & Festival

June 25-26, 10 a.m. 5 p.m. I've got a soft spot for this festival because ...well...we're the same age — don't hate me for being young. Anyways, the Eiteljorg’s celebration of art, history and cultures showcases Native American artists representing more than 60 tribes, family activities, cultural demonstrations, Indian tacos and buffalo burgers (SHOUT OUT TO BURGER WEEK)!

Eiteljorg, 500 W. Washington St., $13 for Adults, Eiteljorg Members are FREE and Children 17 and under are FREE.

3. Dalai Lama

June 25, 12:30 p.m. Chances to see His Holiness are few and very far between. Tickets are limited but they're out there. Peace.

4. Pearson Ford Open

June 23-26, times vary. It's no Wimbledon, but it's a great chance to see some high-level tennis played in your backyard. Many of the country's top collegiate players and others seeking pro caliber match play descend upon Indy for this weekend tournament.

8. Bob Dylan, Mavis Staples

June 25, 7:30 p.m. Grandpa Dylan turned 75 this year, and we've got our fingers crossed that means he’s celebrating with a 75-song setlist.

9. Broad Ripple Canal Duck Race

June 26, 3-5 p.m. How can you not get excited about a rubber duck race? Over 1,500 ducks will enter the water where the Monon trail crosses the Canal. The first duck to the Rainbow Bridge is the big winner! All proceeds support the programs and projects of the Broad Ripple Village Association. Free to attend, $5 per rubber duck!

10. Chilly Water 2-Year Anniversary Party

June 25, 11 a.m. They're brewing a special two year anniversary beer made with TWO kinds of malt, TWO different hops and TWO different yeast strains. That and od favorites like Barrel Aged Doppelbock, Silence Belgian Dubbel and the famous Coconut Porter will return. But my favorite is easily the Berliner Weiss (MY LAST NAME, YO)
