Nickel Plate District Sidewalks Come to Life at Night this Weekend Only

FISHERS, IN- The sidewalks in the Nickel Plate District will glow this weekend thanks to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) and BLASTmedia. Fishers Parks & Recreation is excited to partner with the local organizations as they decorate the sidewalks around the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater with glow-in-the-dark chalk on Friday, September 15 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to raise awareness for the BBBSCI mission, just in time for one of Fishers Parks & Recreation’s most popular events, Glow in the Park. The free Glow in the Park event will bring over 2,000 children and families to the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater for a family-friendly night of fun on Saturday, September 16 from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The event includes face painting, a graffiti wall, a live DJ, a neon splash zone and more (parent supervision is required). BBBSCI will also have a booth at the Glow in the Park event.

BBBSCI hopes the sidewalk chalk art will raise awareness about the organization in the Fishers community and recruit additional volunteers and mentors in the area. Of the 1,200 children that BBBSCI serves annually, only 150 are from Hamilton County, and 50 Hamilton County children are currently on the waitlist for mentors.
