An annual Memorial Day Weekend tradition in the heart of Indianapolis, the 500 Festival Parade on Saturday, May 24, marks the eve of the historic auto race and what's billed as the world's largest single-day sporting event. Joining the festivities for the third year in a row, the Troopers were on hand to march through downtown Indy in the longstanding event that's broadcast both locally and nationally on the NBC Sports Network. The corps' members have been able to take the drum corps pole position in the parade after making their way from Casper, Wyoming to the Indianapolis area to hold their spring training rehearsals.
