No, the event will not occur if it is raining or snowing due to the electrical equipment needed for the blacklights.  We will  make every attempt to reschedule the event for a later date.

We are using UV Splash Flourescent Neon Party Paint at the blacklight stations along the route.  It is safe, non-toxic, waterbased, washable neon party paint! While the paint is washable off skin, it may leave faint stains on light colored clothing and other pourous surfaces.  If you are allergic to preservatives, such as those found in shampoo, or if you have other skin conditions, you may not want to participate in this event.\

8) What is the color powder made of?  Will it stain my skin or clothes?  Is it harmful to people?

The powder is made of Corn Starch Food Grade, Calcium Carbonate Food Grade, Sodium Bicarbonate Food Grade TFF and non-toxic pigments.  he color powder can temporarily stain skin and clothes.  Typically, stain treatment with machine washing will remove stains.  This event is not recommended to those who have compomised respiratory, asthma, or are allergic to any of the ingredients.
