About This Activity

Don't Put Those Costumes Away Just Yet!

Come out and join us for our inaugural Fort Walton Beach Heroes vs. Villains themed 5K. Participants are encouraged to dress in creative costumes and represent Team Hero or Team Villain depending on their alliance. Costumes are not required, but they sure will add to the fun. This timed race will lead off the full day of fun at the "Battle of the Best Field Day, Fort Walton Beach" Festival.

The Kids Fun Run will start at 8:30am and is free to all children 12 and under. No need to register, just come on out and show off your costumes.
