Please note: the Kid's Fun Run has a NEW TIME!

This year's Kid's Fun Run is at 8:45 am BEFORE the 5K. In previous year's, the Kid's Fun Run has after the Butterfly 5K. We changed the time of the race to give everyone the opportunity to attend the trophy presentation to the 5K winners.

Parking is available at the lower parking lot at the WWI Memorial Park and at the North Attleboro Middle School parking lot. Bus transportation is available from 8 am to 1 pm from the middle school.

Live Butterfly Release: Don't miss this beautiful experience. All children must have a wrist band to receive their free butterfly to release at Julia's Garden. These wrist bands are available at the Children's Arts and Craft tent on race day at Julia's Garden. Look for the purple tent! Wristbands are available on a "first come, first serve" basis, so arrive early! The butterfly release is at 12 noon and we release them all together!
