ALL NEW Family Fun Event!
The French Fried 5k & Street Party is a 5k that’s all about food, fun and family.  We have combined exercise and fried foods in a way that appeals to both runners and “just for funners”! The route features tasty treats like cold beer, donuts and corn dogs, plus unique entertainment like musical performers, jugglers, costume characters, and dancers.

Serious runners can expect to run a traditional chip timed 5K route and have the option to pick up refreshments along the way. “Just for Funners” can walk or ride in a golf cart through the route and pick up treats including beer, donuts, corndogs, pizza, ice cream, French fries and more along the way. Participants can even take a bypass route to get to the party even quicker.

As far as what to expect … expect the unexpected!  Don’t be surprised if you run past a 6’2” man dressed up as the tooth fairy, or a number of other humorous spectacles that have you saying, “What the …”.  We also encourage all participants to be creative and wear a costume for added fun!

After crossing the finish line, participants can enjoy a “Tate of Decatur” style Street Party in Central Park featuring live music by Missconduct and food by local restaurants including Sloan’s Calzones, Lincoln Lounge, Robbie’s Grille, Coney McKane’s, The Wharf, The Beach House, Heinkel’s Meat Packing, and TKG Wing Heaven … just to name a few.

In addition to the 5K and Street Party, the first Downtown Farmer’s Market of the summer takes place on Prairie Street from 8am-12pm.
