Party animals and exercise junkies will find common ground at this wacky, unabashedly cheesy bash held at the Mets’ home. It begins with a 5K run through the Citi Field parking lot and surrounding areas. While competitive types are known to sprint ahead, social bees are welcome to walk so they can chat and mingle. Be sure to don black attire for the ensuing glow-stick extravaganza, which moves inside the stadium for dancing and drinking. A cash bar and concession stands will be open, and your ticket gets you glow-in-the-dark necklaces and bracelets. The music is geared to raise your heartbeat both during and after the run, with top 100 mash-ups, EDM and house tunes playing until midnight. Knowing that a portion of proceeds goes to providing solar lanterns to kids in Somalia should make your sore muscles a bit more bearable.
