Get your glow sticks and running shoes ready for a night of fun!Are you looking for an event that combines physical fitness, music, and glow sticks? You're in luck! The world's first running music festival, the Night Nation Run 5k, is coming to Washington, D.C., this summer. The Night Nation Run, happening on June 16 at RFK Stadium, is going to be a blend of a music festival and a nighttime fun run. The course will be lined with all sorts of epic entertainment, such as DJs, laser light shows, a lantern land, bubble zones, selfie stations, and of course, constant music playing through the duration of the run. However, the post-run party is where the real fun begins. Accompanying the packed lineup of DJs on the main stage will be neon lights, fog machines, multiple giveaways, and even confetti guns. This is all lead up to the end of the night, when a surprise headliner DJ will cap off the party.
