What happens when you mix snowshoeing and paint? You get the Arctic Blast Color Dash, a snowshoe race that involves participants getting splashed with different colors as they snowshoe along the trail.
There was a one kilometer race for children and a five kilometer race for adults.
Racers were not timed, so there is no pressure for participants.
"People that snowshoe, or don't snowshoe, or want to try it out for the first time, this is a perfect event. It's fun, they got music, they got the color, the paint," said Kevin Socia, a participant in the race.
After the races, drawings were held to win prizes.
The race was organized by the Ishpeming-Negaunee Chamber of Commerce.
