“Last year’s Palmdale Color Vibe was a huge success and it’s going to be even bigger this year,” said Palmdale Communications Manager John Mlynar. “It’s a unique 5k where participants run, walk, or dance their way through stations, where they get ‘blasted’ with blue, yellow, pink and purple colors.”
To make this event unique, the Color Vibe uses a cornstarch-based colored powder to tie-dye participants. The colored powder is made in the USA and made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that’s been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, 100% safe, and biodegradable. It also washes out easily from skin and hair. As with any substance, it should be kept out of eyes and lungs. Many participants wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated West Coast Classical which regularly performs at the Palmdale Amphitheater.
