PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale has announced the return of the Palmdale Color Vibe, a unique 5K where participants run, walk, or dance their way through stations and get blasted with blue, yellow, pink and purple colors.
The Palmdale Color Vibe 5K is set for 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016, at the Palmdale Amphitheater, located at 2723 Rancho Vista Boulevard.
“[The last] Palmdale Color Vibe was a huge success and it’s going to be even bigger,” stated Palmdale Communications Manager John Mlynar.
