Boone Announces Inaugural Jimmy Smith Park Maranon, Street Party (2018-08-29 15:10:36)

The Town of Boone Cultural Resources Department has announced the inaugural Jimmy Smith Park Maranon and Street Party from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, September 14th. 

The maranon (like a marathon but with a lot less running) will be a .00333k fun run around the Jimmy Smith Park track.

After the Jimmy Run, head over to the street party on South Depot Street for live music from Dave Brewer’s Foscoe Four, a beer garden with Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Booneshine Brewing and Lost Province Brewing and food from the Cardinal Food Truck and Betty’s Biscuits.

The Jimmy Smith Maranon and Street Party is a family-friendly event with free balloon art from Twist the Balloon Man and a bounce house.

To reserve a Jimmy Smith Park Maranon T-Shirt, a .00333k sticker and a maranon bib, contact Sarah Upton at
