Bubble Run is excited to announce that it will be a part of Comcast Arena at Everett’s 10th anniversary celebration on September 21st.  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.

“So much fun! I’m so glad that I picked this one as my first 5k; it got me hooked!” said one runner in Irvine, California.  Bubble Run is focused more on fun and accessibility rather than finish times.  “We wanted to create an event that was like nothing anyone had seen before, as well as an atmosphere that feels welcoming rather than exclusive,” said Bubble Run’s owner, Brogg Sterrett.

The Everett Bubble Run will also benefit the Providence Children’s Center through a limited partnership with the Providence General Foundation.  Everett’s Providence Children’s Center is one of the largest neurodevelopmental centers in the state of Washington, serving more than 350 children and families every week.

AND, the Comcast Arena is turning ten! 

To celebrate this milestone, Global Spectrum, management for the Comcast Arena at Everett, is throwing a 10th Anniversary Block Party and everyone is invited!

For just the third time in the building’s history, Hewitt Avenue will be closed off to accommodate the day’s festivities.  The celebration begins with the Bubble Run 5K at 9 am with an anticipated attendance of 4,000 participants. After the race, the party begins!

From 11 am to 5 pm, guests can expect great music from local bands, delicious food and beverages from food truck vendors, and interactive games the whole family can enjoy. The night continues when the Everett Silvertips take to the ice at 7 pm for their season opener vs. Prince George.

The Block Party is one of the first events slated for the upcoming year that will celebrate the building’s 10th Anniversary.

Interested vendors should call 425.322.2626 for further information.

The activities are the result of an exciting collaboration with Experience Everett and the Snohomish County Tourism Bureau, both of which are encouraging out-of-town attendees to stay the night to fully enjoy the celebration, as well as the city’s many attractions.
