The evening Run/Walk allows for you to start the weekend off right! Come for the Run/Walk and stay for the entertainment at the Sunset Festival. Options are available for a fun 2 mile run/walk (untimed), fun 5k run/walk (untimed) or a timed 5k (with awards).
The Summer Sunset Festival was developed to promote a community festival for the Labor Day weekend. All those who are involved in this weekend are volunteers of the community. We encourage all participants and their families to stay and listen to the bands, enjoy the variety of food and the fun of the carnival or perhaps come back with your family on Saturday or Sunday.
