Popcorn Fest is an annual tradition in downtown Valparaiso. One way that kids aged 2 to 9 years old can participate in that tradition is to run in the Lit’l Kernel Puff races organized by the Valpo Parks Department. Kids run for fun in age group heats with distances varying from 100 to 300 yards.
Everyone who runs receives a participation ribbon. Registration is still available with a maximum limit of 675 total spots. Price is $20 per person. Packet pick-up is Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 PM at the Butterfield Pavilion at Calumet and Evans in Valpo.
