Color Dash Offers a Vibrant Way to Support History Saturday Aug. 16 at Sibley House Historic Site

July 2, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn., July 2 -- The Minnesota Historical Society issued the following news release:

On Saturday, Aug. 16, join the Friends of the Sibley Historic Site for a "radiant" 5K Color Dash. The Dash will take place on the trails just behind the Sibley Historic Site. Participants will start the trek in a white t-shirt and end decked out in a vivid spectrum of colors. The finish line will present one final, kaleidoscopic explosion of color. Bring friends and family not only for the "vibrant" run, but for equally "brilliant" food and live music afterwards. Fees vary.

For more information and to register visit the Color Dash website.

Proceeds go to the preservation of the Sibley Historic Site, a National Historic Landmark.
