  • Color Up 5K
    It's a 5K that's "more fun than run." In fact, contestants don't have to run at all. They can run, walk, skip, stroll, or even stroll while pushing a stroller. At the Color Up 5K in College Station, there are no timers and there's no pressure. The only thing a contestant needs is a partying spirit, sunglasses or goggles, and preferably a white shirt to serve as a cotton canvas for the trek's frequent explosions of technically edible cornstarch colors. With plumes of technicolor fumes that would inspire Francis Scott Key descendants to pen another tune, the Color Up 5K sends friends and families on a kaleidoscopic quest punctuated by giggles and gentle chromatic showers. Besides the glee of fellowship between contestants, the post-race color party also benefits community-based charities. Color Up 5K donates $5 from every race fee to Keep Brazos Beautiful.

  • 1000 ft Urban Slip N Slide
    Three-and-a-half football fields. 63.5 cars. 1,000 total feet.

Covered in a steady stream created by the latest in water recirculating technology, its vinyl surface stretches into the distance for thrill-seekers to slip and slide down during single, triple, or quintuple trips. The entire event takes on the vibe of a celebration, complete with food vendors, attendees decked out in costumes, and seals secretly disguised as humans.

  • Fast Eddie’s® Sports Tavern and Social Clubs
    In 1998, the clack of billiards balls met the clink of cold beers at the first Fast Eddie’s Sports Tavern and Social Clubs in Amarillo. Since then, 17 more Fast Eddie's locations have sprung up across Texas and Louisiana, each letting guests sink corner shots at 8- and 9-foot Olhausen pool tables while sharing a few drinks and snacks such as deep-fried hot dogs. Beyond the felt, home runs and touchdowns play out on multiple big-screen TVs as darts fly into targets and foosball tables re-create the exciting theatrics of gymnasts struggling to play soccer.

  • Graffiti Run
    The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, the Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
