End of Summer Bash & Glo Run weeks away
In less than a month the sky above Newcastle will go with neon colors of the rainbow. It won’t be fireworks, oil rigs or even aliens that cause the illumination.
The Newcastle Chamber of Commerce has been busy planning the First Annual End of Summer Bash and GloRuNewcastle. The event will end the summer with a bang of activities to enjoy.
The glo run starts at 9 p.m. Once nightfall comes and participants of the 5K run, walk & roll will navigate their way to the finish line on a path full of neon colors to light the path.
The End of Summer Bash will start at 6 p.m. And will feature a vendor village, food trucks, kids zone that includes a red neck slip n’slide, inflatables and karaoke music.
The cost to be a participant in the GloRun is only $20, which includes the special event T-shirt. Children 18 and under are free, and the shirts will be available to purchase. Runners can register online once the chamber establishes the site. Registration will also be available the day of the event.
“We are still looking for volunteers to help with the event,” Event organizer and Newcastle Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Chairwoman Robin Fielder said, There is not deadline to sign up to volunteer. Help will be needed all the way up to the end of the event. Vendors have until July 26 to sign up and be a part of the grand event. A few sponsor spots are still open for anyone wishing to help the event be a success. Email chamber@newcastleok. org or call 405-387-3232 for more information.“ We are super excited for the event. It will be one of Newcastle’s largest events...ever!” Fielder said. “It will be GLO-ads of fun!” She added.
