Time: Staggered start times between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Location:  Ovenell’s Heritage Ranch in Concrete
Masks and social distancing are required.

Limited Registration:
Groups of 5 participants, maximum. You must register and pay in advance to hold your spot. You’re welcome to choose your walking partners and register together, or sign up solo and make new friends as you go. Masks are required. Your $10 entry fee includes a free fitness band, hot chocolate or hot cider to go, and door prizes.

Fitness Circuit:
In addition to the 5k walk, you can participate in exercises at stations along the way. Perform basic moves like squats, side bends and lunges, using your fitness bands.

Please note: this event is not about speed — in fact, running is discouraged. We’ve designed the course to help you connect with old friends or new friends from a safe distance. Masks are required.

This event is sponsored by the Concrete Chamber of Commerce, with our partners, Encore Fitness, Ovenells Heritage Inn, and the Concrete Herald, and with funding from Skagit County.

Holiday Lane took place December 12 and featured a decorating contest just like in the 60s, with the special attraction of seeing Santa make his annual appearance. Santa and Mrs. Claus greeted visitors at the brightly lit Town Tree, located near the old fire hall on Main Street. Please see video below and photo of the Town Tree 2020 after its lighting on November 29.

A Drive-Through Celebration
We were thrilled to see so many of you drive through town  to enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays from the comfort of your car. This event was a safe way to visit Santa and his friends, without any fear of spreading germs. More than 50 kids dropped off  letters to Santa and the gnomes and elves (plus Olaf and the Grinch) had a great time sharing Christmas cheer.

After seeing Santa, hundreds enjoyed the many decorated homes  businesses, churches and organizations that entered the Holiday Lane decorating contest.
