The second annual Star Spangled Squirt Gun Run 5k took place Friday, July 4. 380 runners and walkers registered for the event. The run started on Perry and Adams and snaked around the City to end in Adams Street Park. Spectators lined the streets with squirt guns, and even sprinklers and hoses, to squirt the runners and walkers as they went by.
Before the run, Gabe DeFreitas, incoming Port Clinton High School senior and organizer of the event, gathered everyone at the flag pole in Erie Dearie Park and together, led by runner Jaclyn Favro, they sang the Star Spangled Banner.
