Run a 5K and get covered in color at the Color the Grove 5K and Music Fest April 27, 2013, in Albany. Run along a portion of the riverfront and continue through historic downtown Albany as you pass through various color stations. Wear white (or very light) clothing to pick up as much color as possible. A final blast of color will cover runners every 15 minutes as they cross the finish line at the Art Park.
Beginning at 10 a.m., there will be a festival atmosphere in the Art Park. Hannah and Cole, Albany's premiere folk duo, will perform at 10:30 a.m. At 11:30 a.m., The Evergreen Family Band will treat the crowd to some good ol' bluegrass music. At 12:30 p.m., Jon Smith will take the stage with acoustic guitar and vocals.
The race starts at 2 p.m., and music performances will continue in the Art Park as part of the Music Fest portion of the day's activities. Stay through the evening and continue the party on Darton State College campus.
