Post Race Rock Concert
We're hiring a rock band, having hula-hoop contests, face painting, a kid's race, foods, beverages, and much more. Celebrate the start of summer with this fun family-friendly event that supports our local music department!
Our professional photographers will be watching, so rock your dance moves and maybe you'll make it into our promo pics next year's race!
Traffic directors will point you to the closest available spots in the many parking lots around North Attleboro High School and Middle School. These are all very close to the registration tables and start line!
