ALL KILLER, NO FILLER

If you’re a fan of obscure horror films, then you’ve experienced extreme boredom. You’ve sat through lame red herrings, endless chase scenes, shower scenes with NO nudity, and all the talking and talking and talking… just for those very rare magical moments that only these films can provide.

Horror Remix takes forgotten horror classics and slices them down to a power-packed themed anthology. We dig through hours and hours of cinema boredom to find those magical moments that make obscure horror so amazing.

All ages show. Doors open 8pm.

America’s fastest-growing sport, is making its presence felt in Kansas with The Ugly Sweater Race. The Holiday spirit and 5k runs make the perfect blend to raise money in today’s world. “There are a possible of four charities to benefit from the event,” said event co-founder Melissa Parker.

An Ugly Sweater Race takes the novelty of the age-old ugly sweater Christmas party idea and morphs it into a race. Runners wear their ugliest holiday sweater, come out and race in hopes of winning money for their chosen charity. The first male and female to finish will win the donation as well as the captain with the largest team and the runner with the most votes for ugliest sweater. Runners aren’t required to race, but can enjoy running, walking or skipping with their family and friends. The event is not only a run, but also a festive holiday event complete with hot cocoa provided for the runners instead of water stations, holiday tunes, and the ugly sweater contest. Toys will also be collected for the Salvation Army. This event echoes the holiday spirit with participants getting into the festive mood by having fun while giving back to a charity.

All runners will receive a free t-shirt and hot cocoa along with a chance to be a part of a memorable race that is giving back and bringing awareness to several charities. The race is run by a volunteer staff and is currently seeking additional volunteers to assist.
