Annual Events: KICK THE CAN
Kick the Can kicks off
Holiday Food Drive
For the past 31 years, relay teams from workplaces and schools kicked cans down a block of Fort Worth’s brick Main Street while costumed supporters cheer.
A new tradition has begun as Kick the Can returns to Sundance Square Plaza on the first Friday of November—Nov 7, 11:30 am to 1 pm.
As always, the public is invited, free of charge, to watch the races and cheer on participants.

Judges and Awards
A court judge and other community leaders judge the relay races while a local radio personality gives a running commentary on the wild, crazy antics of racers and their cheering squads.
In addition to awards for fastest times, HUMOROUS AWARDS are presented in categories such as Cutest Costume, Mascot Challenge, Most Spirited and Oops!, which is for near accidents as kickers try to keep wayward cans on the street and out of the crowd.
Adding color and fun are costumed mascots from sports teams, corporate sponsors and teams.
The day of Kick the Can, enthusiastic volunteers check in the teams, help participants enter raffles, direct guests to the event's lunch spot, and cheer on the relay racers.
More than ever, we need your donations of canned goods. Most of the donations we receive from the food industry are fresh and frozen foods. To complement these generous donations, we need the community to donate nonperishable foods: canned vegetables, canned fruits, hearty soups and stews, canned fish and meats, cereal, flour and other staples.
