The Grand Prairie Metro Rotary is hosting the 31st Annual Lake Joe Pool 10K, 5K Pumpkin Fest on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Lynn Creek Park, 5700 Lake Ridge Parkway in Grand Prairie. It also includes a one-mile fun run along Lake Joe Pool.

Over the last twenty-nine years the club has raised over $530,000 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and other local charities through the Pumpkin Run. This year they are planning on their biggest year ever. With an annual participation of over 1,200 racers for a combination of the 3 races, their goal is to raise $30,000.00 to benefit Alzheimer’s Research and other local and international charities.

The Annual Pumpkin Fest includes a free pancake breakfast for all in attendance, along with pumpkin decorating for the kids, face-painting and lots of amusement while waiting on the race-results, but beware that all gates into Lynn Creek Park will CLOSE AT 8:00 A.M. and will not re-open until 9:45 for the safety of the runners.
