Run (or walk or skip) to the
Color Vibe 5K at the Kansas Coliseum on Saturday, August 30. Participants will be pelted with pink, purple, green and blue powder at color stations along the race, and then celebrate at a massive dance party afterwards. There’s even a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Joe Stumpe went prowling for hidden gems and discovered fast, fun and affordable burgers, Mexican, Asian, diners and bars.
