Spark!Fishers Ignited by First Internet Bank
The City of Fishers has announced First Internet Bank as the presenting sponsor for the second-annual Spark!Fishers festival this summer. After a successful debut in 2018, the community-led festival will return to the Nickel Plate District with a weekend-long celebration on June 28 and 29.
Since opening in 1999, First Internet Bank has received numerous accolades at the local, state, and national level for its services and workplace environment. Its parent company, First Internet Bancorp (Nasdaq: INBK), was named to Fortune magazine’s 2018 list of 100 Fastest-Growing Companies—the only Indianapolis-area company to be recognized.
“First Internet Bank is delighted to sponsor the Spark!Fishers event in celebration of this great community,” said David Becker, President and CEO of First Internet Bank. “Being headquartered in Fishers, we’re incredibly proud to support this favorite summer tradition in our hometown. It’s especially significant to be a part of the event as we connect one milestone—our 20th anniversary this year—with our future as we break ground on our new headquarters in downtown Fishers.”
In December, First Internet Bank announced plans to relocate to a new development on the south side of 116th Street in the Nickel Plate District. Construction on the new office building is expected to begin later this year. First Internet Bank is currently headquartered at 11201 USA Parkway in Fishers.
Spark!Fishers 2019, ignited by First Internet Bank, will once again kick off with a free national concert on Friday evening, followed by an Independence Day-themed festival on Saturday that includes:
- A 5K Walk/Run and Half K Run for Kids, brought to you by the Fishers YMCA and Geist Half Marathon, with a new route for 2019
- The Fishers Farmers’ Market in the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater
- A massive street fair in the Municipal Complex featuring local artisans, food vendors, businesses, and community organizations
- A patriotic evening parade through downtown Fishers
- A dazzling firework show to cap off the celebration
