Hoosier Outdoor Experience - 

At Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis. The event is this Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The fourth annual event offers free parking and free entry.

Over 50 free activities ranging from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, fishing, paddling and free-horseback riding.

You can bring your own picnic, or buy food at the event.

The goal of the Hoosier Outdoor Experience is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried. More than 20,000 people are expected.

Next Wednesday, September 19th, is the tenth anniversary of "International Talk Like a Pirate Day."

In celebration, Krispy Kreme will give away a free glazed doughnut if you dare to talk like a pirate or wear an eye patch.

Want more than just one free doughnut?  Dress up in full pirate regalia and you'll get a whole dozen!


The secrets to saving the most during on-line shopping revealed in a just released study.

Tuesday is actually the best day of the week if you want to grab a bargain, according to an exhaustive analysis of online shopping.

Thursday is the second best day followed by Friday - but Sunday is when you are least likely to make a saving.

The study also looked at months and when's best to buy. It found that the pre-Christmas rush in November is when there are most bargains around on the web - and not the January sales.

The analysis by month is even more surprising as most people think that waiting until the post-Christmas sales would give them the biggest discounts.

The worst month to buy online is March.

When booking a flight online, the general rule has always been six weeks before travel, but this new study found in some cases the best fares were on sale as long as 24 weeks before departure.
