Fantasy of Lights illuminates 5K

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Runners and walkers still have time to sign-up for the 3rd annual Fantasy of Lights 5K and 2K this weekend. The course is illuminated by the first lighting of the Blue Jacket Fantasy of Lights display at Franke Park. 

Saturday was the 5K race and Sunday is the 2K walk. Onsite registration is in Pavilion 1 in Franke Park from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Online registration is closed. The 2K will start at 6:30 p.m.

Runners in both races receive a long sleeved t-shirt and hot chocolate after the race. Finishers are also given ornaments.

Food trucks are also at the races with food available for purchase before and after the events.

The Fantasy of Lights has 121 different illuminated displays throughout the park. It's been a part of Fort Wayne since 1994, but Blue Jacket took over operations in 2015. It's the biggest fundraiser for the organization which helps provide employment training.
