The 2017 Relay for Life will once again be held in downtown Booneville. Participants will be walking on Broadway between Main and First Streets Friday May 5.

Having the location downtown will make the event more accessible to survivors and it allows larger exposure for the event.

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. with the Opening Ceremonies which will include a prayer, pledge and National Anthem. The Survivor Lap will be at 6:15 p.m. There will be various activates and entertainers throughout the night with closing ceremonies starting at 11 p.m.

There will be 10 teams participating in this year’s event.
