This year the Daffodil Festival will host the inaugural "Keith Stewart Memorial Daffodil Dash". Keith Stewart served as a leader of the Daffodil Committee and in the Fremont community throughout his life. In honor and celebration of his service to the community we'd like to hold this race. The funds raised from the race will directly benefit the Fremont community and its citizens-whom Keith Stewart loved.
The Daffodil Dash will be held on the morning of March 26 before the annual Fremont Daffodil Festival. The race is a 5k through the town of Fremont-The Daffodil Town. Come out to walk or run before an exciting day of fun, crafts and entertainment by local performers and The Embers!
We look forward to "dashing" through the daffodils with you!
Registrations $25; all ages and abilities welcome!!!
