Due to excessive heat and severe weather forecasts, Downtown Green Bay Inc. has postponed today's Fridays on the Fox to next week Friday, July 26 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., which will feature Big Mouth and the Power Tool Horns on the CityDeck.

Due to the extreme temperature and heat index, the Packers 1K Kids Run has been canceled for this evening. The Packers, in partnership with Bellin Health, have been monitoring the weather and determined conditions are too dangerous for the event to proceed.

All pre-registered 1K participants still are encouraged to pick up their packets in the Lambeau Field Atrium from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today. Packets include a race T-shirt, drawstring bag, bib and participant medal. There will be self-serve photo opportunities available during packet pickup for pre-registered 1K participants within the Lambeau Field stadium bowl as well as at the finish line, on the replica turf in the Lambeau Field parking lot.

No refunds or transfers will be available as a result of the cancellation, according to the Packers.

The Packers 5K Run/Walk will continue as scheduled at 8 a.m. Saturday. Participants are encouraged to monitor the weather and check in frequently to the Packers’ Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates on the event.

All pre-registered 5K participants can pick up their packets in the Lambeau Field Atrium from 3 to 7 p.m. today and again on Saturday, July 20, from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.
