Relay for Life cancer benefit is this weekend

PINELLAS PARK — The annual Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N.

It's not too late to form a team and get involved. The event runs from 2 p.m. Saturday to noon Sunday. Among the events are a 9 p.m. luminaria ceremony honoring those lost to cancer, music from the Ries Brothers, Hip Moves Belly Dancing, the Pinellas Park Blue Star Band, a petting zoo and the color guard from the Pinellas Park Police Explorers. The closing ceremony begins at 8 a.m. Sunday. Admission is free. All funds raised go to support programs and services in the Pinellas Park community.
