Spokane, WA—With seven weeks remaining before the big day, Bloomsday organizers still have a few spots open for entertainers along the route of the 2006 Lilac Bloomsday Run. Anyone with a song to sing, dance to perform, or any other sort of entertainment to share along the 7-1/2-mile route on May 7 is invited to fill out an application form and return it to the Bloomsday office by Friday, March 24.
Space is also still available—though filling up fast—for the Marmot March, a new event on the Bloomsday weekend schedule. The Marmot March is a non-competitive 1.2-mile tour of Riverfront Park on Saturday, May 6th, and is open to kids grade one and younger and their parents. The Marmot March is open for the first 300 children who sign up.
For those planning to enter the 30th annual Lilac Bloomsday Run, online registration is available atwww.bloomsdayrun.org, and printed entry brochures are available at locations throughout the Inland Northwest. Mailed in entries must be postmarked by April 18 to avoid the late entry fee of $30.00. In addition, Gart Sports will be taking entry forms at their two local stores from now until the entry deadline of April 18.
