At 11:00 a.m. get your little ones ready for the most fun and colorful race! The 400 yard dash or one mile fun run are sure to be a hit with the younger kids as they combine two of their favorite things -- being messy and running wild! No strollers or wagons allowed on the course. Kids Color Dash will be held at Veterans Memorial Park in Bettendorf. It's sponsored by American Bank & Trust. Cost is $20.
