The Indiana Fever will act as grand marshal of the 2013 500 Festival Parade.

The 500 Festival made the announcement Wednesday. The 56th IPL 500 Festival Parade is Saturday, May 25 and will celebrate the 2013 500 Festival theme: Turbocharging Indy.

A WNBA playoff participant in eight straight seasons and nine times since 2002, the Indiana Fever became the champion of women's professional basketball after defeating the Minnesota Lynx for the 2012 WNBA Championship. The Fever is the only team in WNBA history to record seven 20-win seasons during an 8-year span, a current streak that dates to 2005. During that time, the Fever has reached at least the Eastern Conference Finals five times while appearing in the WNBA Finals in 2009 and 2012.

More than 300,000 spectators are expected to line the two-mile parade route to see the 33 starting drivers of the 2013 Indianapolis 500®, more than 70 specialty units, floats, marching bands and giant inflatable balloons.

Tickets to the IPL 500 Festival Parade are available at the 500 Festival Ticket Office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased by calling (317) 614-6400. Reserved bleacher seats start at just $14.50; reserved chair seats $19 and reserved VIP/TV Zone seats are $32.
