What is the best decade? It is without a doubt the 80’s. Those who grew up in the 80’s want to go back and those who didn’t want to go and experience it. It was a time with crazy hairstyles, clothes, music and technology.
It was a time when technology was just reaching out to a whole new world. Computers, Atari and Walkman’s were ruling the world. The 80’s took us from records and 8-tracks to the amazing and compact cassette tape. It was so amazing that we could fit all our music on this little cassette tape. We could hold this amazing electronic device called a Walkman and play our cassette tape. You could rewind, fast forward and pause our music on demand….WOW! Who remembers taking a #2 pencil to fix their cassette tape, we all did it.
Come out for THE 80s RUN, and experience the best decade again with a fun run, bad hair and clothes and finish with some dancing with a 80s DJ and a headlining 80s Band til sunset!
Ahhhh, The 80's...from tight cotton shorts, leg warmers, headbands and torn up shirts, What will you wear? We will have best look-alikes, best original individual, best Group Costumes and plenty of cool 80's gifts to win.
