Foam, bubbles, paint showers and black lights. That can only mean one thing, the Port Huron Parks and Recreation and Police Department released the new theme of its fun run – The Glow Dash.      The Glow Dash will be a night run where runners and walkers will encounter paint showers, foam, bubbles and more all while glowing under black lights. Pre-registered participants receive a white t-shirt which will glow bright throughout the 2.5 mile run. The fun continues after the run with an after party with a DJ and adult beverage tent.
