On a cool night on Thursday, locals took in the Light Up the Night 5K in the Independence community in Horizon West.
Hosted by the Windermere High Cross Country team, the 5k kicked off at 6:00 p.m. just outside of the Independence community clubhouse.
The path, lit mostly by luminary bags, added perfect ambience for a night run. At the end of the 3.1-mile run, runners finishing the race were met with cheers and fake snow flying about.
After the race runners and visitors alike took in some tasty food at one of the several food trucks stationed at the event.
