5K run part of weekend activities at Verona Fest | Events
Verona Fest (previously called Nest Fest) is a weekend full of family-focused activities such as softball tournaments, hockey games, bands and carnival-style games for the little ones.
The fourth annual TDS TV Verona Fest starts Friday at 5 p.m. with food, games, free ice skating, and beginning at 8 p.m., live music from "Mid-Life Crisis."
The Verona Fest 5K run and 1-mile fun run for kids kicks off the Saturday festivities. The 5K features chip timing, unique awards and a T-shirt for pre-registered participants.
The 1-mile kids run is designed to let kids 10 and under show their stuff on a 1-mile loop, which starts and finishes under the same arch as the 5K.
Organizers said participants can come out for the run and stay for the festivities.
Live music Saturday features "Lube" at 8 p.m.
Registration and packet pick up opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 8:15 a.m. The kids fun-run starts at 8:30 a.m., followed by the start of the 5K at 9 a.m.
