There is truly something for everyone of any age to enjoy, kid’s area with hand-on art children activities, art vendors and the Kewanee car show with vintage cars lining the streets of downtown Kewanee. Live music will be featured throughout downtown Kewanee while you stroll the car show, shop and dine in Kewanee’s specialty shops and restaurants. Color Run Prairie Run is a 5K run/walk with a twist of color. Start out sparkling clean, be prepared for color cloud bursts of blue, green, pink, purples, and yellow as you run along the course. As you finish you’ll look like a tie-dyed Hippie! A non-competitive run it is open to all ages! Be inspired by color! Pick up some chalk, and be an artist this July downtown Kewanee!
