My young nieces and nephews LOVE to watch truck shows on television. The noise, the lights, the excitement of the crowd gets them every time.

If your kids are the same, you’ll definitely want to take them to the Carlisle Events’ Carlisle Truck Nationals, August 1-3, 2014. The family not only has the opportunity to enjoy a show field of around 2,000 trucks, Jeeps, SUVs, and vans, but also adventures in a monster truck ride. The girls won’t feel left out, since they can cheer on Chrissy Moler power the XXX truck, or watch 11 year-old Katelyn Moler as she drives Pandora. This mini Monster Truck is equipped just like the bigger, more monstrous trucks.

For the most colorful run in your life, head to Carlisle’s Color Vibe. If you’ve never been, Color Vibe is a 5k run where runners get covered with vibrant colors. Color Vibe is the fun way to be crazy with friends and family. Participants aren’t timed, so there is no pressure to hurry. Young runners and walkers are welcome.

The magical color powder is custom manufactured and produced right in the United States. The colors are made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, is 100% safe, and also biodegradable. As with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs. If you are sensitive, you may want to wear glasses or goggles for your eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for your mouth. (This is especially recommended for our younger runners/walkers)
