Indy 500 Pace Car, Princesses make pit stop at May 18 Spring Fling

BEECH GROVE, Indiana – In Central Indiana, May is the month of strawberries and fast cars roaring around a storied oval track.

Visitors to the annual Senior Promise Spring Fling Strawberry Festival will get a slice of those traditions Wednesday, May 18 at Sarah T. Bolton Park (1300 Churchman Ave.) A model of this year’s Indianapolis 500 Pace Car – a Chevrolet Camaro SS – and 2016 500 Festival Princesses will be on hand at this year’s event, scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Franciscan St. Francis Health Senior Promise will incorporate into this year’s event a bit of the history and tradition of the Indianapolis 500, which is observing its centennial year.

The festival, which is free and open to the public, offers live music by The Tides, door prizes and strawberry shortcake treats. And it provides an opportunity for those 50 and older to take advantage of the myriad benefits of Senior Promise membership.
