– Early admission into Facebook Festival’s Chili, Cars & Everyday Stars event.
– Drink & chili tasting tokens
– Custom water bottle
– Swag bag filled with goodies
– Cool Menlo Fire 5K T-shirt
Following the 5K, participants can stay for the Chili, Cars & Everyday Stars event, which will include live music, car show, chili cook-off, beer, wine & cocktail garden, free kids zone, local farmers market, artisan vendors, booths from local police, fire, and branches of the armed forces, and much more!
