- What is the color made of?
- Can we eat the colors?
- Can you inhale it?
- What if it gets in my eyes?
- Will the color wash off skin/out of hair?
- Will the color stain my clothes, hair, shoes, etc.?
Not recommended. It is corn starch but will taste like colored dirt. Although the color stations make people so happy that they may smile widely through the color blast, it will result in a mouth full of color. When you approach the color station, take a deep breath and close your mouth as you revel in the color explosion.
It's a lot like breathing in dust and dirt, extensive exposure is not recommended. If possible, we recommend you provide a white bandana or other covering for them to put over their nose and mouth. Anyone who has asthma, is allergic to corn starch, or has any respiratory issues should exercise caution when participating in color powder events.
The color washes out of most materials, but just in case, we want you to wear items you are not worried about staining so you can enjoy the event to its fullest! Depending on how colorful you get, the color may stain your skin, hair, and clothes until finally coming out after a few good washes. To help prevent stains we recommend removing as much excess color as possible before washing. If you have lighter colored hair, you may want to cover up with a hat or spread coconut oil on your hair prior to the event.

Wear items from your color fun event bag. The provided sunglasses/goggles will help prevent you from getting color in your eyes. The bandana too will keep the powder away from your mouth and nose. It’s recommended that you close your eyes and mouth as you run past the color stations!
Take before and after pics at our photo area! You’ll want to see what all this color is about!
Expect to get colorful! You will have colored powder tossed towards you at 4 different stations on the course. The color is non-toxic, food-grade cornstarch. Be sure to wear the provided color fun event t-shirt and clothes that you don’t mind getting messy. Wear a hat to keep the powder out of your hair if you prefer.
Participants in the color course must be 3 and older, but any youngsters looking for a color-free experience can dash in our no-color Rainbow Run.
Keep your color fun event t-shirt as a souvenir! Color can be made permanent by soaking the item in vinegar, allowing it to air dry, and then ironing it before putting it through the regular wash.
Clean-up is part of the fun! Bring baby wipes, tissues, and towels for your car. A towel or sheet over the seat will ensure that all the color stays on you and off of your car.
