Five things to know for Saturday


Happy Saturday! Here are five things to know to get your weekend started.

1. The weekend will be dry, but cool. Saturday starts off in the upper 30s and low 40s, with highs in the mid 50s for the afternoon. Sunday morning temperatures fall near freezing, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 50s later on in the day. We return to the 60s by Tuesday, and our next chance of rain will move in by Wednesday. Get the full forecast here or watch Eyewitness News Weekend Sunrise.

2. The Monumental Marathon is being held in downtown Indianapolis today, and the race course will take runners and walkers to Monument Circle, the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Broad Ripple, past the Butler University campus and Indianapolis Museum of Art. Expect traffic delays and plan ahead. Map and road closures.

3. Speaking of downtown road closures, South Street between Missouri Street and Capitol Avenue will be closed for the Indiana State Marching Band Championships from 6 a.m. – 10:45 p.m.  Local schools include Avon, Carmel, Ben Davis, Lawrence Central, Center Grove and Homestead Ft. Wayne. See a complete schedule here.

4. Give the kids a rake and put them to work! Leaf collection starts next week (Nov. 9) and this weekend is a good time to get started, if you haven't already. See guidelines for the City of Indianapolis' leaf collection program here.

5. Have you ever wondered what the quirky Kessler mansion looks like on the inside? This weekend you can get your chance at an estate sale. See details and a slide show here.
