“On the 12th Day of Christmas my Cheapster gave to me, 12 Days of Hamilton County…”
Our Cheapsters that live in or near Hamilton County may already be aware that this northern Indianapolis county is blending all the sections of its holiday festivities into one huge program that they are calling the 12 Days of Christmas. It would be impossible for us to detail every aspect of the 12 Days of Christmas in Hamilton County, but we want to point out just how many goings-on there are this time of year.
For the full details, click here to see all the attractions and activities. In the meantime, here’s a sampling of some of them by category:
