Manheim is ready to rock… and glow!
The Manheim Downtown Development Group is gearing up for their 2nd annual Rock-N-Glow 5K race and After Party to be held on Historic Market Square in downtown Manheim.
Live music performed by Crackerboxx, delicious food served by local restaurants, bounce castles, and fun family activities will make this one event you won’t want to miss!
The event will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 31. DJ Ben Bodnar will get the Square rocking to a variety of music. Crackerboxx will begin playing at 7, and the 5K starts at 9.
“We have added a lot of elements to this year’s event,” stated Darlene Ober, Main Street Manager, Manheim Downtown Development Group. “Don Krasley, who yearly during the month of December transforms his yard into a musical synced lightshow, will be lighting up three buildings on Main Street. Along the race route, runners will enjoy live music by the bands Perfect Fit and Chrome.”
Pre-registration is required. Race pack pick up will take place at the Farm Show Exhibition Center located at 502 Adele Ave., Manheim on Thursday and Friday, May 29 and 30 from 4 to 7 p.m. Racers can also get their packs on the day of the race starting at 6 p.m. on Market Square.
“We have over 1,850 racers registered for our 5K,” said Ober. “We are excited to bring this event to our downtown and raise funds for the Manheim Downtown Development Group to continue their revitalization efforts in our community.”
Racers and spectators are encouraged to come head to toe and glow. The After Party will be glowing with award presentation to race winners.
“The awards are handcrafted by Stiegel Glassworks 1976,” stated Ober. “We are thrilled to be able to support another non-profit organization and present authentic and one-of-a-kind trophies to the winners.”
Other After Party activities will include music, food and dancing. Designated parking areas are listed on the MDDG website. Roads will close at 8 p.m. and reopen approximately three hours later. For more information, visit manheimdowntown.org or call 665-1762.
