  • Hyde Park Farm & Polo Club
    Amy Vann Flowers has deep roots in Hyde Park Farm & Polo Club. Her great-great-grandmother's family owned the property back in 1896, and her grandfather bought it back piece by piece after it was sold. By the 1950s the farm was whole again, and he left it, along with the 1865 homestead where his mother was born, to his granddaughters. Today, Amy follows the mission her grandfather started: to preserve this 380-acre low-country swath of history in its original glory. On its grounds, rolling pastures, saltwater fishing ponds, and wide oaks welcome visitors for weddings and private events. The grounds are also home to one of Amy's passions: a US Polo Association regulation field. At an on-site Polo School, a team of resident coaches teaches all ages and skill levels the basics of horseback riding, swinging a mallet with accuracy, and training a horse to do an end-zone dance. The field also hosts competitive polo matches, such as the spring and fall invitationals that draw in the nearby public every year.

  • Color Me Rad
    Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2015 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new GEL color. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt and a pair of RAD knee-high socks, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Also, new for 2015, all runners will receive access to free professional digital photo downloads. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can run for free.

  • Run or Dye
    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.

  • Repticon
    Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.
