Nothing To Do In Indiana? Free Tickets To A Kids Show

20121202-120348.jpg

Yes, I am going to see a kids show for free. Because my wife rebroadcast a Twitter post, she entered a contest to win free Max and Ruby tickets from a local public relations firm.

I am not sharing this with you to brag. I am sharing this with you as information that you can use to do more in Indianapolis, with your family, for less money.

How can you do this? It is extremely easy.

Create a Twitter account. You don’t have to constantly share pictures of your food and cats. You are using it as a medium to find out what is going on in your city. You can follow me here or here and follow Michelle here.

Find the Twitter or Facebook brand pages of things you want to do in your city. If you don’t want to follow them, you can create a Twitter list or follow a list of local brands that someone else has created.

Start watching what these attraction post. Most of the paid events will have offers on Facebook to ‘Like’ and or comment on their page to win tickets. Or, on Twitter, they will ask you to RT something they posted as a chance to win.

Will you win every time? No, I believe your chances are pretty good for less popular events. I also entered the same contest Michelle did and also won tickets. Once I found out Michelle won, I informed the PR company so someone else could have the tickets.

Take Care and Good Luck.

Disclosure:

This is a series of posts for people who think there is nothing to do in Indianapolis. I disagree with this notion and believe these folks are not trying hard enough to find things to do with their families. These are events that look like they would be fun to do and I would attend with my family. Unless otherwise stated, I was not asked to post about this event. I was not compensated for posting about the event posted at the top of this page. These opinions are my own. I am just a guy trying to let my kids experience different things. I am also trying to be an Awesome Dad. Will I be at these events? Yes! Can you come up and take a picture with me? Heck yeah! Again, thanks for reading this far into the post.
