Festival on Main coming to downtown Speedway  Main Street in Speedway, Ind., will turn into a charity kickoff for the 2013 Indianapolis 500 when the Indy Family Foundation presents the first Festival on Main spectacular from 6-10 p.m. Friday, May 10.

The Festival on Main, free to the public, will include a zip line, custom car and motorcycle show, live music, celebrity dunk tank, local brew pubs, the popular Food Truck Alliance of Indy and a special KidZone. Zip line rides down Main Street will cost $10 per ride.

The event will take place rain or shine in front of Indy car racing shops of Dallara Cars and Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, just a few blocks from the famed 16th Street and Georgetown Road main gate of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

IZOD IndyCar Series drivers and local celebrities will participate in a variety of events, including the Celebrity Dunk Tank. The Dallara Racing Experience "street legal" two-seater Indy car will give rides throughout the evening.

Among the Indy 500 competitors scheduled to attend the charity affair include recent Brazil race winner James Hinchcliffe, IZOD IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, Fontana 500-mile race winner Ed Carpenter, 2008 Indy 500 winner Scott Dixon, Marco Andretti, Charlie Kimball, Josef Newgarden, JR Hildebrand, E.J.Viso, Sarah Fisher, Sebastian Saavedra and Pippa Mann. Several drag racing stars also are scheduled to attend.

The KidZone area will feature bounce houses, pedal cart races, paint-your-own Hot Wheels cars, obstacle course, Sumo wrestling suits, Fire Safety House demonstrations, glitter tattoo stations and face painting. The fee for the KidZone will be $10 for an unlimited play wristband and $25 for a Family Pack of unlimited play.

The custom car and motorcycle show, displayed on Main Street in Speedway, will have a limited number of entrants. Pre-registration for the vehicles will be $25, with Event Day registration at $35. Pre-registration is available at www.indyfamilyfoundation.com.

All proceeds go to the IFF, a charity that aids those in the motorsports community (regardless of sanctioning body) who find themselves in financial need due to hardship caused by illness, injury or death.
