Running’s much more fun when you put on a costume, trust me.
You’ll get that opportunity at the Spooky Skedaddle, a fund-raising race that benefits the Texas School for the Deaf.
The festival, which includes a 5K timed race and a 1K fun run, is set for 3-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 at the school’s campus, 1102 South Congress Avenue.
Besides the race, expect an entire fall festival complete with food trucks, carnival games, trick-or-treating, face painting, arts and crafts, music, a Halloween costume parade, cake walk, miniature ponies, fire trucks and a clown. Proceeds will be used to bridge the gap between state funding and student needs.
Entry fee is $30 for the 5K or $3 for the 1K costume run. Register at http://www.tsdfoundation.org.
Admission to the festival is free.
