Wrapping up the holiday events, we’ve partnered with the Grand Junction Kiwanis Club and we’re running for a “cause”. It will be a sight to see on Saturday, December 14th as over 100 Santa’s take off down the Riverfront Trail during the Santa Cause Run at Las Colonias Amphitheater. With a 1K for kids 12 and under, and a 5K open to all, get in the spirit of the season with a reason to give and receive. All proceeds go to purchasing inclusive playground equipment for parks around the Grand Valley. Look for more information to come next week.

Parks and Recreation wants to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season!
