Starting Friday evening if you are looking for something active, the Church at Viera is hosting a 5k run/walk to help end homelessness in our county. This is a fantastic event to help bring awareness to this topic and to raise money to help these families out. The race begins at 6pm. The theme is “No Place Like Home,” which is very fitting.

There is free admission, free parking, and this event is open to children and pets! There were even some pet vendors last time my daughter and I went with her pooch.
All weekend, Saturday-Sunday, at the Grant Community Center will be the Grant Seafood Festival. This event is run entirely by volunteers and the proceeds go back to the local community helping with scholarships to their community library.
With so much to do this weekend, I am not sure which events I am going to make it to! If you see me out and about don’t be shy and come say hi.
