The Nutcracker and Howl with the Wolves

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 and relaxation happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.

The Long Center

This Saturday, January 5, and Sunday, January 6, starts the New Year off right at the production of The Nutcracker, presented by the Lafayette Ballet Co. The joyful production brought each year to the Long Center for the Performing Arts is a family favorite for the start of the New Year, and a special time to appreciate the talents of dancers and guest artists right here in Lafayette. Special memories are created on this magical night of dancing and artistic performances.

Have you ever howled with the wolves?  You can!  This Saturday, January 5, at 7:30pm join the wolves as they howl the night away at the Wolf Park Howl Night.  This is a night that features a lecture on wolf communication, the opportunity to see some of the staff enter the enclosure and interact with the wolves of their main pack, and the chance to howl with the wolves.  Wolf Park also features bison, coyotes, foxes and more!
