The Relay for Life of BOW takes place today, April 27 through tomorrow, April 28 at the High Plains Community Center/Orange Fairgrounds.
Participants who plan to camp out overnight are invited to pitch their tents at 2 p.m. Relay co-chairman George Geane reminds everyone that no open flame is allowed so: no kerosene heaters, gas grills and as an American Cancer Society (ACS) event absolutely no smoking whatsoever.
"It's going to be cool out, so if you are camping overnight, be sure to wear warm clothing," Geane said.
The opening ceremony begins at 6 p.m.
The Survivor and Caregiver Lap steps off at 6:30 p.m.
The Survivor Reception follows immediately after the lap.
The Relay Committee has planned many activities to fill every hour of the day until the solemn Lumninaria Ceremony begins at 9 p.m.
You will be able to buy Luminaria bags until 8:50 p.m. They are $5 each and all money goes to the ACS for cancer research.
While you walk the track, visit the different team tents and buy a plant, bracelet, raffle ticket or whatever they have to offer — Remember all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
The Luminaria Ceremony runs from 9 to 10 p.m.
When that is over quiet time begins with a showing of "The Muppet Movie" at 11 p.m.
Only quiet activities and sleep will be allowed between 12:30 and 5 a.m.
The closing ceremonies are at 7 a.m. Saturday morning.
No pets allowed except for service animals.
