what a great concept–a 5k (or a 1 mile family friendly walk) on halloween to prep for the inevitable candy consumption to follow later in the evening!
hundreds of fun-loving folks turned out for this super fun event decked out in their costumes ready to run and ready for fun! the event is held on halloween each year as a way to celebrate the holiday and to celebrate the closing day of elitch gardens amusement park as well. so–after the run everyone can enjoy one last day at the park.
as a photographer i LOVE people who love life. people who grab the moment and live it to the fullest. this event was saturated life lovers. people ran in masks, wigs, full makeup and some even ran while pushing the kiddos in the stroller!
i walked around snapping shots in the colorado sun and smiled all morning. i love my job. i love halloween. i love elitch gardens and i love the melting pot!
see you all next year. (i put it on my life list to run the 5k next year with my kiddos!)
