INDY 500 FESTIVAL PARADE

DATE: SATURDAY MAY 25, 2013

LOCATION: DOWNTOWN INDIANAPOLIS

The Confucius Institute is looking for people who are interested in volunteering and participating in this year’s Indy 500 Festival Parade on Saturday May 26th.  Our Institute will be a sponsor and will have three giant Chinese lantern balloons that will require at least 5 handlers per balloon.  We will meet downtown at the American Legion Mall, on North Street between Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets.  Check-in will begin at 8:00am and a post-parade reception will be from 1:30 – 3:30pm, which will have pizza and beverages.  If interested please register at www.500festival.com (Instructions are attached).  When prompted, you will need to enter our access code which is “lantern.” If you register by Wednesday, April 10th you will receive an invitation to Volunteer Appreciation Day. This event is held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Pole Day. Lunch will be provided to those volunteers!  Please also send an email to ciindy@iupui.edu that you are planning to volunteer.
