IPL 500 Festival Parade
As one of the original events of the 500 Festival, each year more than 300,000 people line the streets of downtown Indianapolis on the Saturday before the Indy 500 to experience the IPL 500 Festival Parade. Global in scope, yet hometown in spirit, the event is ranked among the nation’s top three parades, along with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parades. The Parade features celebrities, all 33 drivers competing in the Indianapolis 500, spectacular floats, giant balloons, specialty units, and award-winning bands from across the country. Come on down on May 25th at 11:45AM!
