Upcoming kids’ City Crew events 2023
September 9, 2023 – Color Run & Back to School Bash
Grab a white shirt out of your closet and lace up those sneakers! This 1-mile outdoor Color Run is where living a healthy lifestyle meets with an explosion of color as runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder at various checkpoints along the way.
The event will begin with a group-led warmup at 9:35am to build the excitement and the race will begin at 9:45am. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to finish because it’s all about the color! Everyone’s a winner and runners will receive a participation medal. Crew Members will receive a pair of sunglasses at check-in for extra eye protection, but don’t worry as the color is non-toxic! After the race is over, enjoy a group cool down activity at 10:15am.
During the entire event there will be a party with festive music, a fun Zumba workout, and inflatables such as an 18 ft. Soccer Dart, Viking Axe Throw, Wacky Backyard Obstacle Course and Wacky 4-Man Equalizer. Then, test your skills with a variety of tabletop carnival games like Quack Attack, Potty Toss and Ring Toss. Jam to the music while sipping on snow cones, eating popcorn, and getting your face painted.
Before you leave, make sure to stop by the school supply table to collect some items that will help you start the school year off right (while supplies last).?

Don’t forget to pick up a cool animal mask and grab some popcorn along the way.
