Maya Angelou Elementary plans color run, carnival Oct. 10

Pasco’s Maya Angelou Elementary School will have a community color run and carnival Oct. 10 to raise money for the school’s kindergarten playground and other classroom equipment.

The school’s parent-teacher organization is organizing the event. The mile-long color run, where runners are doused with colorful powders, will be stroller and family friendly. The carnival will include bounce houses, clowns, mazes, face painting and food trucks.

All proceeds will go toward the efforts to expand the kindergarten playground and to purchase smart boards for all the classrooms.

The event begins at 10 a.m. and registration for the run is $5. Families can register for the event at
