Update: Thanks for your support!
As we continue to prepare for the upcoming Beacon Hose carnival from June 9-11, there’s one big event left on the agenda before then.
Yep, it’s the annual Beacon Falls RiverFest! In addition to the festival and duck race on May 14, this year there’s a new event attached to the goings-on. It’s the first Jill’s Race for MS, and it’s being run in memory of longtime Beacon Falls resident Jill Betkoski, who had multiple sclerosis and passed away 10 years ago.
The race starts at the Beacon Falls Recreation Complex at 10 a.m. and will loop downtown, through the hill section off Burton Road and finish near the firehouse. The race — which comes in the form of a 5k run, a 2-mile walk or a half-mile kids run — costs $25 for adults and $15 for children.
