The annual “Run for the Roses” event added two new twists this year: a 5K run/walk and a zero-K race, which covered three feet from start to finish.

A Kentucky Derby party and fundraiser was held at the Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum. Participants were encouraged to dress up for the occasion. They watched the race on a big screen TV and enjoyed entertainment, prizes and Southern-style food.

Proceeds from the event support TLHD, Minnesota’s longest running summer theater.
