Though I would recommend it, I believe that those purchasing it need to have more info on it before purchasing. it is a great way to taste some things but some of the trucks seemed 'put out' to have to do the tastings. one truck offering mac and cheese (though you could see it was not from a box) tasted like it was mass made with a powdered cheese sauce with a handful of real cheese mixed in it. like they did this to please the organizers but did not want to do it.

Very informative and inspiring presentation on 3D printing in the Garden Room of the Montclair Bistro restaurant. The only hitch was that there was only seating set up for about 25% of the people attending this 1-1/2 hour event. I had to call the front desk of the restaurant to find out where they kept the extra chairs. A few of us then set up the chairs ourselves a few minutes before the presentation started. Even then, about a dozen late-comers still wound up standing in the back.

it was very informative - the setting for the experience was comfortable but crowded.

The Deal

  • $29 for race registration for one ($50 value)

On September 21st at 10:15 a.m., runners take off from Montrose Beach for a 5k sprint through explosions of colored powder. All participants need to bring a white T-shirt to wear during the race. The race is not timed, so some participants may also want to bring a stopwatch.

Rainbow Fun Run

While meteorologists have trouble predicting weather even a week in advance, it's a safe bet that their forecast for September 21st will be cloudy with a 100% likelihood of color storms. The date marks the launch of Chicago's first annual Rainbow Fun Run, a 5 kilometer, friendly race with a twist. Competitors hurtle past three color stations on their way down the course, where onlookers pelt them with exploding packets of colored powder. The powder drifts in multi-hued plumes over the crowd, temporarily dying skin, clothes, and anything else it touches. Pristinely clean runners, all dressed in white, start the race at 10:15 a.m at Montrose Beach, and cross the finish line happy, festooned with new paint jobs, and in easy walking distance of a panoply of restaurants.
