McALESTER — The second annual Wild Color Stampede is set for Oct. 5 at 10 a.m.

The stampede is a 5K run through Old Town where the participants are doused with colored powder at stations along the route, according to organizer Ginny Webb executive director of McAlester Main Street.

This year the route will start and finish on the south side of the Whistle Stop Bistro on East Krebs Avenue, Webb said.
