Seiche  /sā(t)SH/:  a temporary disturbance or oscillation
the water level of a lake or partially enclosed body of water.

This year’s costume contest theme is “Water” — because, seiche happens! In addition to our amazing 5K race medals, additional medals and prizes will be given for the three best costumes selected by our judges, and the first three costumes to cross the finish line! To be eligible for awards and prizes, costume contest entrants must be registered for the race and sign-in for judging between 8:00-8:45am—before the race in Fishtown. 


Fishtown is a forever project that relies on community and donor support. 100% of Fishtown 5K proceeds help preserve and ensure that Fishtown remains here every day, for everyone. We greatly appreciate additional donations from our 5K friends—which you can make when checking out, on our website, or by mailing your check payable to Fishtown Preservation to PO Box 721, Leland, MI 49654. Thank you for your continued love and support of Fishtown!
