BOLTON, Vt. - More than 90 participants ran in the 2nd Annual Bolton Valley 5K to benefit Vermont adaptive ski and sports Saturday.

That event raised a few thousand dollars, but the fun didn't stop there.

After the race, a brand new event called 'Hop Jam' took place with live music, food and beer.

Organizers said the goal was to have a day full of fun activities to kick off Labor Day weekend.

"I think its a nice blend of local Vermont products, Vermont beers, Vermont bands, Vermont foods, and then the best that we could find out of state," said Meg Schultz, Hop Jam Event Coordinator.

"We are actually pretty quiet over the summer time so this is a way for us to sort of get back out there, invite people up have a good weekend. Our seasons passes are on sale right now and they reach the full retail rate after September 15, so this is a great way to remind people of the deadline," said Josh Arneson who attended the event.

Along with the 5K and the Hop Jam, Bolton Valley is also hosting it's annual tent sale through next weekend.
