Crowds, insects swarm Downtown Racine's First Friday

This blue moth tied for most creative costume in the Racine Art Museum's "All the Buzz Bugathon" on Main Street Friday night. The race featured kids dressed up as insects.

Perfect weather and a holiday weekend combined for a rollicking First Friday in Downtown Racine. Anchored by live music, sales and the Racine Art Museum's "All the Buzz Bugathon" race, which had kids dressed up as insects running down Main Street, a huge crowd packed Main and Sixth streets. Here's photos of from a fun night:
