Paramount Presents: Shark Fin Fun Run

Saturday, August 17 - 4:00 PM

This summer, grab your sun block and floaties, and head to the Downtown Mall on Saturday, August 17th for the first ever Shark Fin Fun Run, hosted by The Paramount Theater and Champion Brewery!

Channel your inner Jaws and compete as a Shark or grab your goggles and slap on a speedo (if you dare!) to complete the course as a Swimmer. But beware…the Shark’s job is to chase the Swimmer and take a “bite”, in the form of your flag belt. The Shark with the most bites at the end wins a prize! Along the way, take a break at the “Peace Point Pier” (Champion Brewery) where Sharks and Swimmers can enjoy a cold one without the fear of attack! Run will begin under The Paramount’s marquee.

Catch the current back to The Paramount by 5:45PM for a Swimmer’s costume contest. , The Shark with the most bites will be recognized, too, which will be followed by the summer classic Jaws on the Big Screen at 6:00PM. The registration fee for the run includes a special edition 2019 Shark Fin Fun Run Paramount beach mat, one free pour at Champion Brewery, and admission to the movie.
