Entry Description
Lady or gentleman, boy or girl, your chance to go gaga, free, arrives in less than a month.

Gaga Ball, one of the latest outdoor game crazes, is one of more than 50 outdoor activities participants can do — free — at the fifth annual Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience at Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis, Sept. 21-22.

Watch a video of game action at youtube.com/watch?v=sO73MVAkhzw or see gagaballpits.com for more information.

The American Camp Association, (acacamps.org), will feature the Gaga Ball at its booth. The portable pits necessary for the game will be provided by Coach Cliff’s® Gaga Ball Pits.

As in previous years, there also will be loads of more traditional activities for everyone of almost all ages, from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding and much more. All equipment is provided.

About 25,500 people attended last year. Room for more awaits in the heavily wooded, spacious, historic 1,700 acres of former Army base.

Participants can even bring their own food, although food booths will be on site.

The Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day that weekend. Made possible by the generosity of Central Indiana Ford Dealers, the event is presented by the DNR and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation. The goal is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried.

Online advance registration at hoosieroutdoorexperience.IN.gov is requested. Watch there or Facebook.com/HoosierOutdoorExperience for updates and details.

Outdoorsy individuals who want to share their passion can volunteer at hoosieroutdoorexperience.IN.gov. For questions about volunteering, contact Cheryl Hampton, (317) 233-1002, champton@dnr.IN.gov.

Whether participating or volunteering, Fort Harrison State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2982.htm, 5753 Glenn Road, Indianapolis, 46216) is the place to find free fun on Sept. 21-22.

Fun can be found in the rest of the outdoors of Indiana all year long. But it probably won’t be free.
