About: Hosted as part of the annual Drum Corps International World Championships, the first-ever Celebrate Indy Arts! Parade will bring more than 30 of the world's finest marching music ensembles from around the world together with members of the local Indianapolis arts community in the most musical, creative and fun-filled parade to ever hit the streets of the Circle City.
Stepping off at 11 a.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 13, the parade will wind through the streets of downtown Indianapolis, ending on the Indiana War Memorial Mall (431 North Meridian St.). Concluding the event in the early afternoon will be a tribute to America, as more than 2,000 brass musicians assemble to play an en masse rendition of "Battle Hymn of the Republic." Drum Corps International will host its annual World Championship Finals later that evening at Lucas Oil Stadium.
