Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in or near Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.

On March 19 and 20 tour Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art! The Haan Museum is housed in an impressive Classical Revival mansion that served as the Connecticut Building at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, with many hand carved components taken from a 1760 mansion from Norwich, CT. The Museum features massive museum-quality American antiques and an exceptional collection of paintings by important Indiana artists, including some of the finest works by TC Steele and other Hoosier Group members. Important items from the Fair include three Weller vases ranging from 53″ to 81″, the largest of which won the Gold Medal for the Arts at the Fair.

On Saturday evening, visit Wolf Park, and see the animals in a whole new light during “Howl Nights”. As the night falls and the air cools, the wolves get frisky. Guests will have an opportunity to hear a more in-depth discussion of the wolf’s “trademark” behavior — the howl. They will have front row seats to a sing-along as Wolf Park’s expert wolf handlers enter the enclosure and interact with the main pack of wolves. Guests will be encouraged several times during the performance to howl, and will be able to see and hear the wolves return the call.
