We want to take you on a Wild Goose Chase!

Whole Children’s Wild Goose Chase is an annual 5K, kids’ carnival, and family fun races for all ages and abilities. Race events include a chip-timed 5K race and 1 mile run/walk/roll, as well as a slew of kids' races.

This year’s carnival events included horse-drawn wagon rides by Muddy Brook Drafts, hula hooping with Hoop Joy Amherst, yo-yoing with A2Z Science & Learning Store, face-painting, games, and much more.

Food trucks were provided by Bruiser’s BBQ “It’s All About the Smoke”, Holyoke Hummus Company, and Bart’s Ice Cream and Expandable Brass Band and our very own Friendship Band got us rocking. Special thanks to our media sponsor and emcee, Western Mass News and our DJ, Peterson Productions!
