Super Bowl Fans Find Way To Stay Warm When Temps Fall

At least some out-of-town visitors to Indianapolis may need a little help adjusting to the cooler temperatures.

Despite temperatures reaching 60 degrees, football fans flocking to Indianapolis for Super Bowl activities are looking for ways to stay warm when the temperature falls.

Indiana’s winter climate is likely not the reason Indianapolis received this year’s Super Bowl bid. So far, football fans are enjoying the unusually balmy temperatures – just in time for the Super Bowl festivities.

But it still gets chilly and retired Indianapolis school teacher Lucille Mueller says she wasn’t going to miss downtown activities due to cold temperatures.

“I’m warm, yes I’m layered,” she laughed.

And if she gets too cold, Mueller says she visits an indoor downtown attraction or warms up using one of the many heat lamps installed along Super Bowl Village.

“I know that, and I think some of the seats here are heated and you can feel some of the heat from the heaters and as you get more people, that warms you up too,” Mueller says.

But at least some out-of-town visitors to Indianapolis may need a little help adjusting to the cooler temperatures.
Co-chair of the Super Host Public Relations Committee Bill Benner says besides heated portable restrooms, committee members have found ways to embrace cold Indiana winters with the outdoor activities.

“Let’s have the Super Bowl meet the Winter Olympics, let’s try to marry those two concepts, I think we’ve done a fabulous job so far,” he says.

Highs are expected to reach 50 degrees through Friday, then falling to the low 40s for the weekend.

    given the record for the tornadoes, I would not think that their gear is enough. Does anyone recall the True and Living God who said, ‘If my people who are called by NAME would humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear them from heaven and heal their land?’

    repent America, for attempting to provoke Israel into ‘giving’ back land that the Lord gave to them, for killing millions of babies as Pharoah and Herod and Hitler had done, and for an addicted and apostate churchianity which is saltless, loveless and spit out.
