With runners approaching the starting line in capes and pink wigs, LED bracelets and neon glasses, it's obvious that the Electric Foam 5K is more of a party than a race. But what hammers the point home is the foam. As participants of all ages run, walk, jog, or dance through the course, Electric Music Foam stations meet them at every kilometer, dousing them in bubbles and cranking up their pulse with EDM jams. Nighttime runs go one step further, too, accentuating the carefree fun with lighted tree installations, colorful glowing murals, and a boogeyman-free guarantee.

If the run seems like a party, it's nothing compared to the after party. Once runners get their fill from food carts and vendors, the venue erupts into a dance hall, with DJs spinning beats by Calvin Harris, Daeadmau5, and David Guetta. And to make sure the participants don't forget where they are, a countdown sounds and cannons fire foam into the crowd.

In Good Taste Cooking School's Chef Julie trained at La Varenne culinary school in Paris, and now passes on her gastronomic expertise to adults and children in classes. Whisks hiss against bowls and utensils clatter briskly onto marble counters as pupils learn to prepare cupcakes, appetizers, and full meals in the home kitchen. As the aromas of fresh herbs, lemon zest, and roasting chicken fill the room, knives slice through produce with increasing confidence, and students gradually learn to tune out the weeping of onions. Culinarians of all levels identify and work with cool sprays of rutabaga, dill, fennel, and basil, crafting dishes that have included salsa verde, succotash, and rhubarb crisp. Julie also leads camps during the summer and hosts parties for birthdays, garden clubs, and graduations.

Adventure Supercars puts customers behind the wheel of some of the fastest automobiles ever made in the nation's largest traveling Supercar Adventure. This is done through ride-alongs with professional drivers in cars up to 1000hp or with clients driving the cars themselves on tracks across the country. Clients increase their adrenaline supply with thrilling rides in cars such as the BMW M3, Porsche 966-1000hp, Nissan GT-R, Ferrari F430, Lamborghini LP 570 SuperTrofeo, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 Italia, and Lamborghini LP 700 Aventador, which is more successful than trying to convince a car dealer that your name is Mr. Todd BMW, of the American BMW family branch, and you'd like to borrow a car for the afternoon.

ClayCreate Pottery Studio's classes offer people of all ages and skill levels the chance to learn how to make their own pottery, an opportunity the ancient Greeks never had, which is why all their ceramics are broken. ClayCreate focuses on two techniques—wheel throwing and hand building—which can be learned in small eight-week courses and practiced during open studio time. The open time is always monitored by at least one instructor, in case anyone needs assistance or has some hand-raising skills they'd like to practice. Or, instead of lessons, clients can commission custom pieces—everything from replicating a vase that has broken to a making a garden gnome resemble a least favorite cousin.

The educators behind Mad Science propagate a love of science, technology, engineering, and math through programs that immerse kids in exploration. Rather than standing at a lectern and droning on about static electricity or the life cycle of a cootie, the educators meet kids at eye level for experiments that actively instill principles of questioning and observation. Although their methods are fun, they're also meaningful—lessons align with STEM objectives and enrich classroom science curriculums. Scientists typically host workshops at school facilities, but also can transport their rockets, lasers, and slime to birthday parties and inquiry-based field trips.

Jan Wellendorf’s passion for karate began in 1963, when he first studied techniques from Japan, China, and Korea. Now a 10th-degree black belt, Jan has molded these experiences into his own style of karate—sanshinkai. At Karate International, more than 70 black belts teach Jan’s methods at five locations, where they help students use Eastern-inspired skills to control themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually. Geared toward pupils of all ages, Karate International’s programs also emphasize cross-training, which can incorporate everything from judo’s throwing techniques to the pizza-eating regimen of ninja turtles.
