Join us for Anacortes' very own color run - Do the Bloom! This is the third year of this 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run, Walk, Stroll or Crawl! The course is along the beautiful Cap Sante Marina and our voluteer color throwers will work to make you a moving piece of art at each of their color stations.
This year, your hard work and colorful fun will be rewarded with Spring Fest. This is an Arts Festival celebration of artisans, music and food happening at the Depot Arts Center from 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. Saturday & Sunday.
This is a great opportunity to be active and smile ALL THE WAY! This event is filled with joy and frivolity and is appropriate for runners (and walkers) of all ability levels. It is a fun run and though we award the top finishers, it is not a timed race.
Do the Bloom is produced by the Anacortes Arts Festival and the proceeds benefit Public Art Programs on Fidalgo Island.
