Old Bill’s Fun Run is almost like a parade — the streets were packed on both sides with thousands of people walking and jogging through town. This is the first year the race was run since 2019, and it had a massive turnout.

People ran with cowboy hats and boots, people ran with colonial dresses and one with a full ram’s costume. Others ran with skis over their shoulders, signs supporting their local charities and one man even rollerbladed the whole thing while being pulled by two huskies. The crowd ranged from Larry Van Genderen at 86 years old to August Allen at 4 weeks old.
