Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly be more colorful, you’ll cross the finish line and find yourself in the middle of a colorstorm at our race-ending celebration including music and fun. Race begins at 5:00 PM in the Village Park. Fee is $9.00 which includes a walk t-shirt and individual powder packs for the finale (3 and under free).
