"Celebrities" announced for 500-Festival Parade

Is this Indianapolis Observer just cranky today, or are the "celebrities" participating in this year's 500-Festival parade even more obscure than usual?

The IPL 500 Festival Parade, scheduled for noon, Saturday, May 26 in downtown Indianapolis, will include Zachary Quinto, Jessie Metcalfe, Eric Braeden, Tyler Christopher and General Chuck Yeager.

OK. I've heard of Yeager (although his claim to fame happened in 1947, when he became the first person to break the sound barrier, and he retired from the military in 1975 -- yes, more than three decades ago). But the others? Evidently all appear on television shows, mostly soaps, that I've never seen.

Oh well. You, too, can pay $13.50, $17 or $30 for a seat at the parade -- or watch it on ESPN2 from 5-6:30 p.m. or WISH-TV-8 from 8-10 p.m.

There's more at the 500 Festival website.
