Barkfest Color Run & 5k to benefit Animal Rescue League

barkfest 2015

JColor Runust one aspect of Brookhaven’s amazing community is the incredibly active and excellent Brookhaven Animal Rescue League! Their Barkfest Festival event is coming up and it is a wonderful way to experience Ole Brook!

It is held on the Mississippi School of Arts campus. This year promises to be the best event yet! Save the date and plan to bring your family out for a day of music, arts and crafts, jump houses, food, fun and more! And before the main event — a 5k!

BARL’s 3rd Annual 5k and Color Run is at 8:30am on Saturday, May 14th. Downtown Brookhaven will be filled with our furry friends and those who take care of them! This is a huge fundraiser for BARL, and also, a hugely good time for all who attend. All proceeds from this event directly benefit the animals of the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League.adorable barkfest

We are definitely looking forward to the 5k and color run that will be held throughout the beautiful, scenic Downtown Brookhaven area. Colors flying, people running and puppies and dogs everywhere is only half the fun though. Other aspects of the festival include a car show, vendor’s booths, live entertainment, food, Brookminster Dog Show, Percy King’s Exotic Animals, a Kids Zone, a Dog Zone and much, much more!
