Approval, in principle, has been given to a new event to replace the 5K Foam Fest in Wasaga Beach this summer.
This morning (Thursday), a council committee approved recommending that full council move forward with the Candy Run 5K.
It is a family friendly run/walk with obstacle courses where you get candy as you pass through each of four "candy zones".
It is to be held on Saturday, August 8, 2020.
This is the same date Foam Fest was held on.
Organizers of Foam Fest have decided to hold their event at Horseshoe Resort in Barrie this year.
