The possibilities are endless from clothing to paint, glitz, and glam. Get creative as we celebrate our nation's birthday! Official judges will survey race participants and select top contenders. Those finalists will be judged by the crowd during the awards cermony to decide who is the best dressed overall. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places!
