Long description

Welcome to Belleville! On the 10k, the Richland Creek Greenway connects six city parks. After leaving the greenway you will traverse through two historic districts and a beautifully renovated downtown streetscape. The 5k takes you past the shops and restaurants on Main Street and through Belleville's Old Historic District. The Fountain square is host to many events throughout the year. Saturdays, May-October, you can catch the Farmer's Market. The weekend after Mother's Day in May is "Art on the Square," voted #1 and #2 in the nation for the past nine years. The last weekend in June is the "Jazz and Wine Festival." September brings the Oktoberfest and the first weekend in October is the Chili Cook-Off. Info www.belleville.net.
