On Saturday, January 21, 2023, a 5k Foam Race and the 2nd Annual Art Festival to support Minneola’s phase two of the “Murals on the Trail” Project will be held.

The day begins at 8 am with a Foam 5K race that passes through the Highway 27 overpass where the murals on the trail are located and end with a foamy finish in Trailhead Park. Built for both the hardcore athlete and the beginner alike, this race is full of fun and for all ages! You can register for the race at Minneolaartworx.org/foam5K.

Minneola’s Second Annual Murals on the Trail Art Festival (MOTT FEST 2) kicks off at 11 am and runs until 4 pm. Enjoy live entertainment, music, arts & crafts vendors, art demonstrations, food trucks and more. And don’t forget to peruse the 16 outstanding murals already adorning the overpass. The festival is FREE and will be held in Minneola’s Trailhead Park. There are still spaces available for vendors and food trucks, you can register at the Minneola Artworx website; Minneolaartworx.org/mottfest2023.

It’s not too late for artists of all ages to submit mural proposals for the final phase. The deadline is January 15, 2023. Please go to www.minneolaartworx.org, for more information. The murals measure about 9’ x 14’, and artists are strongly encouraged to visit the site prior to submitting their proposals.
