James and the Giant Peach

Jenny Wiley Theatre Pikeville Mainstage: 218 Second Street Pikeville, KY 41501
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop sown their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally over-sized personalities. But after the peach falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean the group faces hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together. JWT's Footlights Theatre presents this much-loved story by the creator of Matilda, Roald Dahl. Great for the entire family!

The Graffiti Run

Kentucky Speedway, Sparta, KY
The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. Bold statement, we know (especially if you lived through the 70′s or ever owned a hyper-color t- shirt), but just hear us out. First off, we use the term “run” loosely here at the Graffiti Run. Our 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness. Secondly, the no-six-pack-required course means the Graffiti Run is for EVERYONE (unless you hate color or smiling, then you are not invited). You will see green grand-parents next to pink college students. Yellow marathon runners alongside blue children. Orange moms next to purple unicorns*. We only have two rules: you must get absolutely drenched in color and have an amazing time.
Raising money for local charities! Check out the event location for more details.
The Graffiti run is currently offering 50% off registration for everyone included in the Kentucky Speedway email blast. Go to The Graffiti Run website and sign up for the Cincinnati, Louisville, and Lexington race. Type the code KSpeed50 when prompted during check out to redeem offer!!
