Fun Activities for Kids at the 500 Festival mini-mini

The 500 Festival mini-mini is about to send thousands of little runners (ages 5-12) around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the third time. This annual late-summer tradition is quickly becoming one of the largest and most iconic kids’ runs in the country! But just like the Indianapolis 500, there’s more to do at the track than watch racing.
