French Fried 5k & Street Party

5K at 10:00 am
Street Party 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

The French Fried 5k & Street Party is back again to liven up downtown Decatur on June 2, 2018.  This non-traditional 5k and street party combines exercise and fried foods in a way that appeals to everyone from runners to “just wanna have funners”.

For the serious runners, this event will be timed like a traditional 5k.  However, “funners” can walk the route, ride in a golf cart, or even bypass a portion and go straight to the party at the end.  The route will once again feature multiple refreshment stops where runners can choose water and a banana, and “funners” can indulge in a beer and/or “less than healthy” treats.

The Street Party in historic Central Park will feature live music, drinks, and a “Taste of Decatur”-style food booths with local restaurants serving sample sizes of their most popular menu items.
