500 Festival Kids’ Day is an Indy 500 celebration sized just for kids! Kids’ Day features interactive, educational displays and activities in a carnival-like atmosphere, giving children the opportunity to stretch their minds and their muscles.  

This free event is taking place at Monument Circle on Sunday, May 15, from Noon – 4:00 p.m.    

Lindsay Labas, 500 Festival VP Marketing & Communications joined us Tuesday on “Life. Style. Live!” to share more about what you can expect from this event.

A big part of this day is also the Rookie Run, where Indiana’s youngest runners take to the street. This non-competitive race allows children ages 3 – 10 the fun opportunity to get active and experience the excitement of a running event, complete with a start and finish line production, cheering section, participant bib and finisher medal. There is a $10 pre-registration fee.
