Special to The PREVIEW
Start the Fourth of July with a bang at the Star Spangled Shuffle — a 3k and 5k fun run/walk that will start and finish at the parking lot opposite the Ross Aragon Community Center on Hot Springs Boulevard. Finish and get your Star Spangled finisher’s medal in time to watch the parade in town at 10 a.m.
All ages and abilities are welcome to this inaugural Fourth of July event. Bring your dogs, strollers and the whole family. Wear red, white and blue, and stars if you can. There will be prizes for the best dressed. The event starts at 8 a.m.
Proceeds from the event will go to GECKO, but the focus is on community spirit and is also a great way to celebrate the holiday.
Registration on the day only: $15 for the 5k, $12 for the 3k and kids 10 and under run for free.
