[ARCHIVED] Can’t stop First Fridays; live music and more at Festival Park July 5

First Fridays

Has the week really knocked you down? Are you looking for higher ground? We’ve got the perfect solution. The Red NOT Chili Peppers take over Festival Park for First Fridays July 5.

All the way from Los Angeles, this Red Hot Chili Pepper tribute band will help complete your Fourth of July celebration with some of the best rock music of the 1990s through today. Head to Festival Park to enjoy live music, food trucks, cocktails, kids activities and more. Cocktails and family fun begins at 5 p.m., and live music begins at 6 p.m. The festivities continue until 9 p.m. 

With yard games, family friendly activities and a themed run/walk, First Fridays are perfect nights to bring the entire family Downtown. Before you indulge in the Friday fun, the 5K after 5 series will keep you moving through the summer season. July’s theme is a Patriotic 5K. The run begins at 5:30 p.m., and registration is available the day of the event. 

Start the run/walk at Festival Park in your best patriotic gear. Collect a flag from a 1K station on the course. Then, turn in your flag at the end of the race to win a prize. Prizes will also be awarded for the best dressed. Plus, participants receive a free beer or soft drink after the run.

There will also be a special appearance by the United States Marine Corps. The Marines will be presenting a youth pull-up challenge where participants can win a free T-shirt. Adults can also compete for swag or a free beverage.

Check out for details for the entire season, or follow the event posts on the Town’s Facebook page (CRgov). 

Thank you to our sponsors! Orange Theory Fitness, Castle Rock Zip Line Tours, RNK Running & Walking, Discount Tire, Outback Steakhouse, Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant, Firestone Complete Auto Care, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Bar Nails and Sports Clips all provided prizes for the 5K participants.
