The in­au­gu­ral stag­ing of Dash – The In­de­pen­dence Color Run, a fivek­ilo­me­ter fun run, is set to host hun­dreds of par­tic­i­pants as they run through showers of colored pow­der in cel­e­bra­tion of health, hap­pi­ness and na­tional pride for Saint Lu­cia’s 36th year of In­de­pen­dence.

Dubbed, “A Kalei­do­scope of Hap­pi­ness”, the un­timed event, or­ga­nized by Li­ive Pro­duc­tions Inc. will be held on Fe­bru­ary 23, 2015 be­gin­ning at 6:00 am. The race will begin at the Choc Es­tate round­about, as par­tic­i­pants will be­come a mov­ing can­vas as they pass through three-color zones rep­re­sent­ing colors of the na­tional flag. The fin­ish line will be at the en­trance of Rod­ney Bay which will lead into the “In­de­pen­dence Vil­lage” where pa­trons can en­joy live en­ter­tain­ment while par­tic­i­pat­ing in mul­ti­ple color throws!
