Withrow said the overnight activities will include a frozen T-shirt contest, hula hoop, Minute to Win It contest, corn hole tournament, and water balloon volleyball.

One of the most touching moments during the event is the luminary ceremony which takes places after sundown, honoring the community's cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. Participants will circle the track that is surrounded with glowing luminary that bears the name of someone who has battled cancer. Luminaria may be purchased for $10 by calling Withrow at 237-8469. They may also be purchased Friday at the event.
