2nd Annual Color Fun Run + Walk
Sunday, June 12 – 11am to 1pm

Get wonderfully colorful at the second anual Color Fun Run + Walk at Woolsey Park in Titusville.  All ages of participants can walk, run, or anything in between as they watch themselves turn into a technicolor masterpiece.  As it’s name suggests, it is all about fun! If one can walk for two miles and enjoys a good time, this event is a perfect fit. It is not timed. There is no pressure. Just fun and fresh air!

Note:  The Hopewell Valley Neighbors article incorrectly listed the event date as June 19.  The Color Fun Run will be held on Sunday, June 12.

Congratulations to Seraphina Gillman, Olivia Levin, David LaRaus, and Nicole Bartnikowski 

It is always a joy to support and attend one of the HVAC events. One of the favorites is their Annual Pumpkin Carve. The creativity of the artists and the innovative thinking skills of Carol and her team allowed for a “drive thru” Pumpkin Carve last year. It was exactly what the community needed to get people out of their homes (safely) and bring some much needed laughter to both children and adults.
— Lisa Freeman, Foundation Board Member, Robert Wood Johnson- Hamilton

Hopewell Valley Arts Council is incredible — offering programs for everyone in the community and surrounding area from the youngest to those who are older. Their programs and offerings, from pumpkin carving, lectures, arts shows at the community hospital engage both participating artists but all the individuals who simply want to look, study, and observe what “artists” do. Keep up the wonderful work.
— George Olexa & Terri Olexa, Member Artists

This program is made possible, in part, due to funds from Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and the State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
