Run for Shindig on the Green
The Folk Heritage Committee is excited to announce the first ever "Run for Shindig on the Green," a fun and healthy way to help support Shindig, featuring a 5K Race and Fun Walk/Run.
The event takes place Saturday, June 30, 2012 at Carrier Park with the Fun Walk/Run beginning at 9:00 a.m. and the 5K race at 10:00 a.m. The "Run for Shindig on the Green" event kicks off the 46th season of Shindig and is a key element in securing necessary funding for the free and beloved Shindig on the Green summer Saturday evenings.
Two overall winners will be recognized at this year's first Shindig on the Green, on the evening of June 30th, and all race participants are encouraged to attend. The overall male and female winners of the 5K will each receive a beautiful mug featuring the Folk Heritage Committee logo and handcrafted by Mangum Pottery in Weaverville, NC.
