would you prefer to drink regional craft beers or run in a race?

So many decisions in life...

to taste ethnic eats and drink craft beers, or to run a 10k...

Luckily in downtown youngstown on Sunday you can do either, or both.

Sunday Oct 4 will the the 35th annual Youngstown Peace Race, an event that brings runners from around the world to the mahoning valley.

The race meanders a 5+ mile path through Mill Creek Park and its lakes and ravines, emptying the runner into downtown youngstown and to the finish line. If you've ever done the drive in the fall, it's spectacularly beautiful.

At the finish fine downtown from 11am-5pm will the Oktober Ethnicity Fest, where people can taste food from Youngstown's different eateries, try brews from across the Tech Belt, and listen to music.

Participating breweries will be Rust Belt Brewing Co. (Youngstown) Brew Kettle (Strongsville), Thirsty Dog (Akron), and Church Brew Works (Pittsburgh).

local Hungarian, Greek, Irish and Hispanic food vendors will all be serving downtown.

music in sets by Bouzoukeetime (Greek), Innovacion (Latin), County Mayo (Irish), and Geo C and the Storm (Funk).
