Find a team of up to six and join us for this fun, messy and active outside event!

Each participant starts off with a clean white T-shirt and finishes up with a colorful new piece of clothing to take home.

How will we color our shirts? Enter an arena and battle each other for 15 minutes with colored powder balls! We’ll send you home dirty and with instructions on how to set the color on your new T-shirt.

The library will provide a t-shirt for you, or you can bring your own favorite t-shirt to color. If you bring your own shirt, however, bring another clean shirt to change in to, as you will be putting your colored shirt into a bag to take home. 

It’s going to be silly, squishy and super fun.

Please wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty (including shoes).

White T-shirts will be worn over your clothes.
