The 2016 Indianapolis 500 was one to remember! Race weekend’s most exclusive party, the KeyBank 500 Festival Snakepit Ball, was held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. To help celebrate the 100th running of the Indy 500, the theme was Spectacle: A Night Circus Celebrating the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.


Guests arrived on the televised red carpet before enjoying entertainment from cirque-style performers and Walk Off the Earth, a platinum-selling group.
