This summer’s feature: Despicable Me 2. Click here for more information.

This fun 5k is a non-competitive race that ends at the brilliantly lit Neon Festival. Dress in your brightest costumes, put a team together or run solo through a fun-filled neon race course at Fairplex. Click here for more information.
