Purple was by far the popular color at the Douglas County Fairgrounds the evening of Friday, July 14, as the 2017 Relay for Life of Douglas County kicked off at 6 p.m. 

The event will continue until 1 a.m., with the luminaria ceremony taking place at 9 p.m. 

Watch for more information and more photos in the Wednesday, July 19 issue of the Echo Press.
