This notice is to inform you of an exciting event that will require road closures which will affect your residence, property or business. As part of Comcast Arena at Everett’s Block Party, Bubble Run TM is coming to Everett! Bubble Run is a family friendly 5k fun run, during which participants pass through walls of colored foam at each kilometer along the course. Averaging about 3,000 participants, the event is open to all ages and abilities and is a unique way to encourage healthy physical activity.

A course and timeline have been established to create a fun and safe event while still allowing freedom of movement to most of the community. While there will be temporary road closures and reduced street parking, the majority of the course will remain along Colby Ave, leaving most residents access to adjacent alleyways. We would love for you to be a part of the event, either as a volunteer, or by using the discount code provided in this notice to register as a participant.

Please note that on Sept 21st, there will be no parking along the course. Vehicles parked along the course will be inaccessible from 9AM-12PM. If you will need your vehicle on the morning of Saturday, Sept 21st, please plan accordingly. This is especially important at our Bubble Bogs (see boxes on attached map). Even though thousands of runners passing through piles of colored foam might LOOK like a car wash, we doubt you would be happy with the results.

There will be no shortage of great events on the 21st! With the Coho Derby, Imagine Children’s Museum Derby Days, Bubble Run, Comcast Arena’s Block Party, and Silvertips’ home-opener, this city is THE place to be! Get ready for a party, Everett!

We sincerely hope to see you at Bubble Run and the Block Party and want to thank you in advance for being the awesome city that you are!
