Exploring A New Family Holiday Tradition - IPL Yuletide Celebration

Every year we like to explore the arts in Indy with the kids, especially during the holidays. We've done art museums, plays, musicals, ballets and concerts. This year we took the kiddos to the IPL Yuletide Celebration at the Hilbert Circle Theatre on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. I was a little nervous with how the kiddos would do, but they were on the edge of their seats for the entire show! They absolutely loved it. To make it a whole evening of family holiday fun, we even went out for dinner prior to the show and they got all dressed up. They were calling themselves fancy "Little Man" and fancy "Baby Girl" all night along. It was cracking us up. Plus we capped off the evening with a stroll on Monument Circle and they were striking a pose all over the place. They were quite the pair for their holiday evening out and about.

Here's their top 5 favorites from the show:
  • Of course the tap dancing Santas!
  • A twist on Frozen's Let It Go - sung from a gentleman's perspective. Who would have thought?!
  • Guest artists David and Dania of Quick Change
  • Santa coming down the aisle in a sleigh for a Yuletide tradition - Twas the Night Before Christmas 
  • A beautiful rendition of Mary Did You Know, and a fun a medley of pop holiday tunes
Coach Man and I loved watching them take it all in with wide eyes. It made us remember the simple joys of the holidays. It also reminded us to slow down a bit and savor the moments. The holidays can get stressful and traditions like IPL's Yuletide Celebration are just the ticket to help us all slow down a bit and enjoy more of the beauty of the holidays and fun with our loved ones.

I think we might make this one an every year tradition, peeps! It was that fabulous! 

The amazing family-friendly show runs through December 23rd. Don't miss an Indianapolis tradition. Click here to explore ticket options.
