It does not include the food trucks.
Visiting with the characters does not require a wristband.
Wristbands may be purchased when your register or at the event. If you only want a wristband, it is easiest to buy it the day of the event.

If your child has the desire and ability to run the 5K, they are welcome to register for it.
If you or your child want to run the 2K, you are welcome to register. However only those under 14 are eligible to win.
Bikes, scooters, skates, etc. are welcome but not eligible to win.
Strollers are welcome.
Are the runs timed?
The 5K is timed. The 2K is not.
What if I’m not a runner?
There is a lot to do even if you’re not a runner- dance parties, silent auction, food trucks, and the carnival. If you just want to purchase a wristband, you can do so the day of the event.
Where should I park?
There is a huge parking lot for Electric Park behind the movie theater. There is even more parking in the lot on the south side of Electric Park.
Should I wear a costume?
Costumes (tutu, crown, etc.) are not required, but we love seeing you in them!

Other helpful information:
What to bring:
Water- we will have water available for runners, but it will be hot so you may want to bring extra.
Sunscreen- hopefully it will be a sunny day. We don't want you getting a sunburn. There are shaded areas to help with cooling down but sun protection will be important.
Money- should you decide to bid on any of our amazing silent auction items or decide to grab lunch at a food truck or local business you will want to be prepared. We take cash, credit cards and Venmo on site.
Please arrive early! There will be a lot going on and you won't want to miss it!
