Seeing as this event wraps up St. Patrick’s Day weekend, it should be renamed hangover food fest! The Indy Taco Fest will feature authentic tacos from 2-9 p.m. Sunday at the Indiana Discount Mall, 3585 Commercial Drive. More info


P!nk is bringing her Beautiful Trauma World Tour to Bankers Life Fieldhouse beginning at 8 p.m. Saturday. If you’re a big fan, buy early as the lowest ticket prices on Wednesday on Ticketmaster were going for $145, which will probably change before you read this!

Sports Legends Experience – Grand Opening

Here’s a family-friendly event this St. Patrick’s Day weekend that you will love. If you’ve driven north on Illinois Avenue the past several months, you likely noticed a lot of construction outside of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. It’s the biggest expansion to the museum in 40 years. The Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience opens at 10 a.m. Saturday. Wear your favorite team’s gear and enjoy special opening day activities and giveaways from local sports sponsors. Buy tickets
