Run for the Arts!


Join us October 16th for the fifth annual Great Pumpkin Race 5K and Kids Fun Run! This event is a great way to celebrate the fall season, get some exercise, and support Elk Meadow Elementary School’s Integrated Arts Program. Both races start in front of C.E. Lovejoy’s Market in the Brookswood Meadow Plaza in beautiful SW Bend, with prizes for the top three finishers.
