Greetings & A Royal Welcome to all Princesses, Little Dudes and other Characters!

Wow, you have no idea how excited we are that you are here! Are you ready to have a magically fun day at the Princess Run & Little Dude Dash down by the river?  This is a day that is all about you!  There are no grown-up events, everything is for kids! We are encouraging the grown-ups to be big kids for the day! You can help by giving your ‘grown-up’ ideas as to what characters they can come as! Help Mom with her princess outfit and makeup – get Dad a big honkin’ King crown, use your imagination – just don’t let them come as boring normal adults! Yuck.

So, here’s the skinny on this year’s event.

The theme of the festival is to have a whimsical and magical day. It is meant to be a bit of a royal and regal event, flowing fabrics, with this year being a purple year! Of course we’ll have you, our princesses and lots of Little Dudes with Attitudes!  It is also part circus, with the festive and spirited characters and performers present to have fun and interact with.  And, you never know, there could be Ice Girls – and even a hockey game could break out!

Yes, you will run!  Princesses and Little Dudes will run a 2K (1.2 miles) – Your ‘grown-ups’ are allowed to run with you if they want!

  • The festival will be interactive fun, both indoor and outdoor, at the Devon Boathouse – there will be festival characters to have fun with leading fun activities for you!
  • The OKC Boathouse Foundation and OKC Riversport will have their rowing exhibition, free kayak lessons and some wicked cool new play toys, along with tours of the Devon and Chesapeake Boathouse facilities and the state of the art Finish Line Tower overlooking the Oklahoma River! Yay!
  • We’ll have cool refreshments and snacks for you when you finish the run!

We are busy preparing everything for your April 14th experience now – so, we can’t wait until our magical journey down by the river begins!
