At Pierce Street Portraits, Elaine Yaker draws upon a keen artistic eye and more than 20 years of experience to invite smiles from subjects of all ages.

But while kids are her specialty, Elaine also helps parents, grandparents, and even pets to flash their brightest smiles, immortalizing precious moments in black and white or color prints, photo books, boxes, and wall hangings.
When the starting gun sounds for the ColorFoam5k, participants zoom off toward the finish line. But they'll encounter some interesting checkpoints?colorful ones?along the way. At various points, runners plow through walls of eco-friendly foamy soap suds and jets of colorful water sprayed from the sidelines. The goal here isn't to set any land-speed records, as the race is untimed, which puts the emphasis on having maximum fun and community rather than on competing. But there is another greater purpose to the event: a portion of proceeds benefit local charities.
