​Welcome to our 6th annual Day of the Dead 5k happening Saturday, October 29th.

Share with friends and invite them to the race!

Kids at Finish Line

Once again, we have partnered with the wonderful folks at the Brentwood Boy & Girls Club

...who continue to do an incredible job of providing after school activities for the Latin American community. This year we have a goal to sponsor 100 kids to run the race through our “Sponsor a little runner” program where $25 dollars can contribute to pay a member’s entry fee. During the last four years we have had over 2,500 runners and have been able to contribute over $55K to the Boys & Girls Club.


Art, food, music, dancing, and local beer as part of the celebration

The event has grown into a festival where music, food and art will honor life and dead. This year the race will start at 10:00am and all the festivities will run until 2:00pm. We will have two altars, one at Oakwood cemetery and one on Wilmington Street, where people will be able to do offering of flowers and written messages in memory of their loved ones. There will be art, food and local beer as part of the celebration, and yes there will be out famous dance-off costume contest. Dress up and join us for an amazing fun time.
