The Super Bowl Village will be located on the newly renovated Georgia Street in downtown Indianapolis as well as Capitol Avenue along the Indiana Convention Center. Host Committee Chairman Mark Miles says one of the main attractions is a zipline that will be going down Capitol.

"The ziplines will go from seven stories up all the way down and essentially to the end of the Convention Center to the north. There'll be four of them. This is not free. This is going to cost, I think, ten dollars per person," Miles says.

The village itself will be free. There will also be two stages for entertainment on Georgia Street featuring about 80 bands including some big national acts, none of whom have been announced yet.

Miles says the Super Bowl Village will begin 10 days before the Super Bowl and will be held in conjunction with the NFL Fan Experience inside the Convention Center. He says he hopes Hoosiers take advantage of the village early before visitors coming from out of state for the big game arrive.

Miles says weather will not be a factor and he thinks people will embrace the weather and come out to have a good time.
