Every participant receives a ribbon and a prize bag full of goodies donated by local businesses. Kids can bring their own turtle to race, or may borrow one from the Turtle Pits.

It doesn’t cost anything to participate, but donations are always welcome to help house and feed the turtles throughout the summer.
