Number of Years you’ve have been to the Indy 500? This will be my first time attending the running of the Indy 500. I’ve watched it on television almost every year! To the 500 Festival Parade? This will be my first time at the parade as well. I am so excited to be a part of such an important and historical event in Indianapolis. Such a great way to kick off my first year at the 500 Festival Parade!
Your tips for someone attending the Indy 500 for the first time: Find a way to go! Not everyone will get the chance to go every year, but definitely try to go once. It is such a historical event that takes place right here in the Hoosier state, and it’s wonderful to have experienced it at least once in your lifetime.
Your tips for someone attending the 500 Festival Parade for the first time: I’ve never been to the parade before so again, just try your best to go at least once! It’s so important to be involved in Indiana history, and the parade is an essential part of it.
This is what I am doing in my community as a representative of the Princess Program: As a Princess, I know I only have a few short months to make this a wonderful experience. I have planned outreaches at many of the local schools in my hometown of Anderson and surrounding areas such as Lapel, Frankton, Alexandria, Muncie, etc. I am also trying my best to be as involved as I can in other organization’s events. Being a 500 Festival Princess isn’t just about being a representative for the 500 Festival, it’s a chance to give back to community through volunteerism. So I plan to make this the greatest few months of my life by doing whatever I can to give back to the people of Anderson and the Muncie community (being that I go to Ball State University) along with the wonderful people involved in the 500 Festival.

I was shocked I knew a good majority of the Top 100 drivers! I feel like every one of the drivers in the Top 100 deserved a spot in my Greatest 33, but I am very happy with my choices! 🙂
This May, I’m most looking forward to seeing: Pace Car Reunion
Number of Years you’ve have been to the Indy 500? 11 To the 500 Festival Parade? 3
Your tips for someone attending the Indy 500 for the first time: -Bring sunscreen! -Pack a lunch/eat lunch before the race starts so you don’t have to leave to go get food once the race starts! -Bring a personal radio to listen to the commentators so you know what’s going on throughout the whole track, even the parts you can’t see! -Scream loud and have fun!
Your tips for someone attending the 500 Festival Parade for the first time: -Bring sunscreen! -Wave to those in the parade! -Cheer loud/make signs for your favorite driver so they can see their fans!
This is what I am doing in my community as a representative of the Princess Program: As a representative of the Princess Program, I am working with Race for the Cure, Pacer’s games, The 500 Festival and Indianapolis 500 Education Program, and visiting places such as nursing homes and The Miracle Place. I have prepared to visit some grade schools including my alma mater as well as make appearances and lead programs and prayer nights at my parish on the south side.

Katie, congrats on this! Thanks for all the tips you gave me a few years ago when I took my first trip to the Brickyard. I am sad to see Mutoh is not in your lineup of 33, though.
Katie - Soooo proud of you! Enjoy every minute of your reign. Sunscreen is always good. I like your race line up, but I would've put Tony Kanaan a little closer to the front row. He's an awful good lookin' guy. :) Love ya!
Good luck Katie! I know that you are a big IndyCar and Marco Andretti fan. Hope you get to kiss him in the Winner's Circle this year!
