Wear white, and be prepared for that shirt to never look the same. That's just about the only rule of the Color Blaze 5K, a technicolor event that's a little different than the standard run. For one, contestants don't have to run at all—in fact, they can mosey, lollygag, skip, crawl, jog, and backflip their way along the course. Rather than determining the best time, the non-competitive race is about the experience itself. At each successive mile, Blaze Zones powder participants in biodegradable—and even edible—colors, creating an army of fleet-footed Jackson Pollocks. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities, and an afterparty welcomes the newly prismatic to dance the day away in their freshly illustrated get-ups.
The Westcott House Foundation celebrates its charge’s history through continuing preservation efforts, safeguarding the house as both a museum and shrine to Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision for Prairie-style homes. One of 260 of Wright’s remaining houses in the world, the pristinely restored structure entices visitors from far and wide with its architectural allure and unparalleled hide-and-seek spots. The grounds embody Wright’s love of melding a building with its site, boasting a terrace, a pool, and period-inspired gardens. An intricately latticed pergola connects the carriage house to the main building, a rare and interesting gem among Wright’s normally trellis-free Prairie homes.
Since 1949, the clatter of balls and pins has rung in the ears of bowlers at Shamrock Lanes. Today, 44 Brunswick synthetic lanes usher balls toward their targets in a sand-colored room punctuated by orange wall panels. Between frames, the full-service bar and grill refuels bowlers with burgers and pizza, or players can hone their hand-eye coordination in the arcade. Winning skee-ball earns ball hurlers prizes, and playing shooting games helps them improve their aim so they can go home and water the garden next door through the white picket fence.
