Cheap or free Super Bowl activities

Kokomo — We know. The game is in our own backyard, but with tickets as expensive as they are, we also know few of us from Kokomo will get the chance to see the gridiron in person on Super Bowl Sunday.

That doesn’t mean you can’t be a part of all the Super Bowl action — without breaking the bank.

We’ve compiled our favorite free — or nearly free — activities for you during the build up to the most exciting game of the year.

Come along with us as we check out the amazing things to do throughout the week in Super Bowl Village and Indianapolis.

The concerts

From big names like Darius Rucker and O.A.R. to regional favorites like Here Come The Mummies to more local groups like The Healing Sixes, the concert lineup in Super Bowl Village can’t be beat. During the 10-day celebration leading up to the big game, more than 80 performers are set to hit the stage. And the best part? All the shows are entirely free and open to the public.
