Color Fun Fest 5K
If the Color Fun Fest 5K were televised, it might have viewers wondering if someone had messed with their TVs' color settings. That's because, at one-kilometer intervals across the race course, staffers shower runners with neon powders, transforming them into a kind of collective stampeding rainbow, which is illuminated by powerful black lights during night waves. But participants won't find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow—or, for that matter, a podium; the 5K run is noncompetitive and doesn't track times. Instead, they'll step into a lively finish-line festival—with music during the run, vendors, and a DJ-led after party—where colors fly through the air and stopwatches are smashed like piñatas.
The celebration draws inspiration from Holi, a festival of colors primarily celebrated in India and Nepal. In the communal spirit of that festival, Color Fun Fest 5K helps raise funds for and awareness of local charities, non-profits, and local businesses. The event also encourages family participation, with free admission for kids age 12 and under and a daytime run.
