Day of the Dead 5k

​Welcome to our 7th annual Day of the Dead 5k happening Saturday, October 28th. Once again, we have partnered with the wonderful folks at the Brentwood Boy & Girls Club who continue to do an incredible job of providing after school activities for the Latin American community in the area. This year we have a goal to sponsor more than a 100 kids to run the race throught our “Sponsor a little runner” program where $25 dollars can contribute to pay a member’s entry fee. During the last seven years we have had over 3,200 runners and have been able to contribute over $73K to the Boys & Girls Club.

The event has grown into a festival where music, food and art will honor life and dead. This year the race will start at 10:00am and all the festivities will run 2:00pm. We will have two altars one at Oakwood cemetery and one on Wilmington Street where people will be able to do offerings of flowers and written messages in memory of their loved ones. There will be art, food and local beer as part of the celebration, and yes there will be our famouse dance-off costume contest. Dress up and join us for an amazing fun time.
