INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - It's similar to the material you see on a football field. Now, the artificial grass is making its way to Georgia Street in Downtown Indianapolis.
It's all part of the push to spruce up the area in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl.
Hundreds of thousands are expected to pack Georgia Street Super Bowl weekend and the days before.
Saturday, a small crew form SYNLawn spent the majority of the day installing artificial grass.
SYNLawn --- the company the city contracted to install the grass --- donated nearly $14,000 worth of material to help spruce up the city.
The company's owner, Phil Phillips said, "We saw that we might be able to do something and be apart of it and the whole family went for that very quickly."
Jan Pritchard and her husband, Ron, spent the day checking out the recent changes.
"We wanted to walk and see what it is going to look like before the Super Bowl," Jan Pritchard said. Her husband added they wanted to beat the big crowd leading up to game day.
Meanwhile, Super Bowl week warming stations will line Georgia Street. There will also be a host of activities for you and the family.
