Enjoy a stroll or run with the whole family under the spell of the night. Starting at Peachland's Heritage Park, this all-ages event will include a 5K run or a 3K walk or run along scenic Beach Ave. Check-in will take place at Heritage Park from 6:15-7:00 pm. The race begins at 7:15 pm.

This event is all about fun! Dress up in your best and brightest clothing (think 1980s workout gear!), don some glow sticks, lace up your running/walking shoes, and help us light up the night!
