The Color Run goes tropical for a good cause on Saturday


  • Scooter Lowrimore
Sweat, island-themed paint and endorphins mix together at the Color Run this weekend at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. “The Happiest 5K on the Planet” brings its Tropicolor World Tour to drench you in color and island smells as you prance through an inflatable musical paradise. The run also highlights Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, a nonprofit organization that helps feed people in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties. Before you get plastered in paint, remember to wear white clothing. Here’s some free advice: take a pair of sunglasses.

9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 16 | Central Florida Fairgrounds, 4603 W. Colonial Drive | | $39.99
