Color Blast Dauphin is going to happen a little bit earlier this year, on June 1st.

New to Color Blast this year, is more color stations, an earlier date for the event, and group rates, groups of 8 or more get a free ticket.

The 5km fun run starts at Credit Union Place and does a loop before finishing at the starting point.

Danielle Ledoux, a volunteer for Color Blast and Skate Dauphin says people should come out because it supports a local program.

Proceeds go to Skate Dauphin to use for ice fees and equipment.

Registration begins Monday, tickets for 16 years old and up cost 40 dollars, 5 to 15 years old costs 30 dollars, 4 and under get in for free, and there are group rates that you can contact color blast for the details. There are a limited number of tickets at Scotiabank in Dauphin that cost 25 dollars.

Online registration can be found at www.colorblastdauphin.ca.
