Patriotic Costume Contest with CA$H Prize!
What better way to kick off Independence Day weekend than with the Freedom 4 Miler Patriotic Costume Contest?!
To be entered in the contest, simply don your MOST patriotic apparel, and fill out the required info at the event. Not sure what to wear? You can dress up in as simple as red, white, and blue clothing—or get as crazy as you want, as long as you’re still able to get around, of course! Think Captain America, Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty, bald eagles, Washington Crossing the Delaware, etc. The more goofy, fun, light-hearted, and patriotic— the BETTER!
The winner will receive a CASH PRIZE of $247, the age of our great nation as of July 4, 2023.
