Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color––which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly-named Dye Zone—a polychromatic free-for-all, where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by.

Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

The Color Vibe Los Angeles 5K Run starts out like any other race, but by the end, participants look more like pieces of abstract art than runners. As they race along the streets of Los Angeles, runners are streaked with nontoxic powdered paints that cover clothing and skin in a wash of bright yellows, pinks, and blues. All the while, professional photographers snap candid shots of the colorful, untimed race; the photographs are available for free to all participants so they may share them with whomever runs their household's printing press.

This year’s race will take place on Saturday, October 20, at the Fairplex in Pomona, California. The first wave of runners hits the road at 9 a.m., and subsequent groups leave the starting line every 10 minutes after that.

At Golf Studio, a total of 83 world-famous courses are available at the click of a button, including Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. Inside one of the studio's three simulators, immersive screens pull double duty: they broadcast the sights of virtual courses while absorbing the impact of players' shots. A sophisticated camera and sensor system captures the details of each of those shots, relaying to golfers important data such as distance but leaving out whether or not a swing was hard enough to break through drywall. For extra practice, Golf Studio is open until midnight, seven days a week, and also features a virtual driving range and offers the opportunity to compete in other ways, including long drive contests and closest-to-the-pin games.

Nobody leaves the Splash Dash 5K dry. A series of splash stations equipped with massive showers, shallow pools, and careening water balloons litter the 3.1-mile course, waiting to soak every participant before they cross the finish line. Down one straightaway, runners may confront a gang of volunteers ready to blast them with water guns, only to turn a corner and face the deluge of a fire hose. After braving the watery gauntlet, runners of all ages celebrate their victories at the Splash Dash Bash after party, where prizes are awarded for the best costumes and finish times as runners dance to music and attempt to dry off by matching the speed of their washer's spin cycle.

On October 26, Halloween monsters rise from the undead to invade Luna Supper Club. Not for blood or revenge, but instead for craft beer. At the BierBuzz Masquerade Beer Fest, costumed guests flood the two-story nightclub, letting unlimited sips of beer filter through their hockey masks. 15 local breweries tap kegs for the masses, including Left Coast Brewing, Ironfire Brewing Company, and Ritual Brewing Co. Live bands and DJs set the proceedings to a rhythmic thump, including a reggae set by MightyMellowMassive. Guests enjoy the club's modern stylings as they frolic, including lounge rooms awash in circling light beams and a long outdoor patio.

Taste of the Pomona Valley brings together neighboring vendors to celebrate local cuisine, culture, and music. Toothpicks protrude from the tasty creations of area chefs, whose conglomeration of Italian, Mexican, and Peruvian dishes match with spirituous pours from a cash bar. A DJ presides over the occasion, matching nibbles to a pleasant beat, while event staffers raffle off prizes to lucky attendees. The community-oriented event allots a portion of its proceeds to benefit the Pomona Chamber of Commerce’s scholarship program.
