Back this year is the kid-friendly

Fun Zone. Tickets will be sold individually ($1), as an all-day pass ($12) or as an all-weekend pass ($30). Added this year is a zip line, which will run $5 with a pass or $7 without.

Also returning to this year’s Street Fair is “Art On Cole,” a special area to celebrate the art and artists of the region. Artists will be featured on Cole Street across from the Chamber of Commerce and Arts Alive! building..

For the seventh year, a Saturday morning 5k run/walk with begin and end on Railroad Street next to the public library. This year’s event begins with a “kids dash,” covering a little less than a mile, at 8:45. The main event gets rolling at 9.

The early sign-up period has passed, but registration will be taken beginning at 7:30 Saturday morning at the race site. The cost is now $15 for the kids’ event and $25 for adults; there’s also a $65 family rate that includes two adultls and one youngster.

Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, both male and female, in seven age groups.

Details can be found by visiting www.enumclawstreetfair.com and clicking on the “5k run/walk” link.

New this year will be a Saturday car show, planned for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and sponsored by Les Schwab. Anyone interested in participating can sign up the morning of the show; registration is $15 and participants will receive a goody bag and dash plaque.

Getting around downtown will be a dicey proposition for motorists – but friendly for those on foot – as Cole Street will be closed for most of the three days. The exception is the Griffin Avenue intersection, as Griffin will remain open to vehicles.
