Glow on the Greenbelt NEON

Show your glow!  This event provides an opportunity for our community to come together, have fun, and squeeze in a little exercise along the beautiful Boise River greenbelt in Eagle.  We encourage everyone attending to dress in your best glow gear.  We'll have black lights, a DJ, music, food and drink to make your experience great.  

This 2-mile paved greenbelt course includes a photo op, with a bubble machine and black lights, at the turn-around.  Back at the park we will have the party ready for you!

There is no timing or expectation...Complete the fun at your own pace.  We'll provide the canvas, you provide the color!
