About This Activity

On Saturday, April 23rd, Porterville will have hte opportunitu to particiapte in Color Blast Run as a now-permanent component of the Iris Festival. This 5k run/walk community event is scheduled to begin at 8:00am and will take place in conjunction with the 18th Annual Iris Festival. Held in the historic downtown district of Porterville, and winding its way through the scenic Rails-to-Trails, this event is a favorite of running enthusiasts and casual walkers alike.

Once the run is over, we hope to see Color Blast participants to walk through the Iris Festival showing off their fun colors and crazy outfits.  Many groups of families, friends and co-workers are asked to join in the fun of this event and get a little crazy with their attire, adding to the upbeat atmosphere of the run.
