The Gobble Wobble is a short race for the young who want to be part of the festivities. It involves a quick run around Hillcrest Park Field (Highland Park Community Center). The volunteers help line the route, cheer on the spectators and help keep everyone on track.
Must be over 18 or with an adult. Requires enthusiastic volunteers to cheer on spectators and keep cars off the route. (Police enforce the main intersections). This volunteer must be over 18.
Enforce the barricades at two of the lots so race participants don't park there.
Drive the route after the race and remove No Parking Signs.
This race is an effort not only to get neighbors out and the community together on Thankgiving Day, but also to help support the Highland Park Community. All proceeds from the race go to Highland Catholic Grade School, The Highland Friendship Club and The Neighborhood House (food pantry).
Kick off your Thanksgiving morning with friends and family.
