Everyone is welcome. Children in strollers are free—everyone else must register. Timed participants must get a race bib to be worn on the front of shirt. Wear sunglasses, other glasses or goggles. Cover light colored hair or wear your new “highlights” for a couple of days. It is your choice to be timed -- run, walk, skip, waddle or dance! We recommend that cameras/phones be covered with plastic wrap if you plan on getting shots in the midst of the color. If you don’t want to look like the skittles factory exploded on you it’s okay, we have the color gates marked and you don’t have to go through.
