Looking for a way to brighten up your summer? Look no further. Color the Coast will return to Newport on Saturday, Sept. 16, offering a three-kilometer beach run enlivened by streams of color from the peanut gallery.
Sign up starts at 8 am at the Nye Beach Turnaround, with runners and walkers setting off at 8:30 am, preferably in white t-shirts. At color stations along the route, participants will be doused with food-grade, colored cornstarch.
After the run ends at 10 am, the fun will continue with a color festival beach party, featuring music, dancing and color throws.
This event is family friendly and each participating adult can bring up to two children aged seven and under along for free. Registration is $35 for adults and $25 for kids aged eight to 18.
Funds raised from the event will benefit the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, whose mission is to develop, promote and celebrate community arts.
