The first annual North Loop Fest on Aug. 10 will feature all kinds of activities to celebrate the fast-growing neighborhood, including the TC Urban Dash — an urban challenge race.

Teams of two and four will compete in the challenge by stopping at neighborhood hot spots to accumulate points. Clues will be given to guide the teams to the right places. The race ends at 5:30 p.m. The teams with the highest point totals will get free entry into the Medtronic TC 10 Mile run Oct. 6.

Besides the TC Urban Dash, the North Loop Fest will feature children's activities (face painting, bean bag toss challenge, etc.), live music from the FlashMob!, food vendors and a beer garden. The party will take place in Cuzzy's parking lot at 507 Washington Ave. N. from 6–10 p.m. The Downtown Resource Group is the event's sponsor.
