INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An annual parade and a downtown festival will celebrate Labor Day on Saturday.

The Miracle Mile Parade begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, running along Madison Avenue on the south side of Indianapolis. This year’s theme is Made in Indiana.

Former Indianapolis Fire Department Chief Brian Sanford will be the parade’s grand marshal.

The parade begins at the intersection of Madison and Southern avenues, continuing south to the intersection of Madison and Sumner avenues.

The parade is just one part of Gateway Fest, a south side celebration that also includes a bike ride, music, an art show, a classic car show and an area for children.

In addition to the parade and Gateway Fest, a separate festival will celebrate Labor Day on Saturday. The Indy Labor Fest is from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Georgia Street in downtown Indianapolis. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
