This year’s costume contest theme is “Run Like a Fish!” — sponsored by Two Fish Gallery. In addition to our amazing 5K race medals, additional medals and prizes will be given for the three best fish costumes selected by our judges, and the first three fish 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 8:00-9:00am—before the race in Fishtown. Thank you to all the “fish” that joined us in the Leland 4th of July parade, and we look forward to seeing you “Run Like a Fish” at the 5K!


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.
