New Glow Run Route This Year!

As some of you may have noticed our original route for the Glow Run is under some construction this year so we needed to come up with another plan.

Check it out! We will have the route lit with glow items, and maps will be on the tent for you to look at also!

If your house is on the route make sure to light up your yard!! We will have a contest again this year for the Best lit yard!
