With a full moon in the sky, a huge crowd is on the streets of Indianapolis, and people are lining up to celebrate with friends and family.
“It’s a great day out,” said Jennifer Taylor, a mother of four from Indiana.
“When you have a big party you want to have a good time, so I’m sure everyone wants to go and celebrate,” she said.
“We just want to see the fireworks, so we’re just going to keep coming out and enjoying ourselves.”
But even though the weather is a bit chilly, it’s still quite a sight to behold.
People are lining the street and the surrounding area to get into the ring with fireworks and to get their photo taken with the stars.
It’s just the start of what is sure to be a busy evening of fireworks in the state capital.
“I’m really excited about the fireworks because it’s the first time we’ve had it, it feels like we’re finally getting to the end of the world, it seems like,” said Taylor.
“If you look at our lives it’s a bit boring, and we don’t get to do all the things that we want to do.”
But I think this is really important because it will give us a chance to look at what we have, and to celebrate all of our greats that we love, that we have a lot of love for.
“The Rainbow Road celebration will be held on the weekend of March 31 and continues until April 7.
The Rainbow is the name of the first road that ran across the border from Canada and is named after the American pioneer John Brown.”
He used to say, ‘We’ve got the right roads, but not the right colors’,” said Marion County Road Commissioner Mike Gee.”
So it’s really about the right colours, and the right weather, and of course, it gives you a chance for everyone to get together and enjoy themselves and not have to worry about anything.
