It’s time to put on those walking shoes and hit the pavement to fight cancer. The kickoff celebration for the 27th Bakersfield Relay for Life is Saturday.

Current and future Bakersfield relay teams are invited to join in on the fun at the Spectrum Amphitheatre at The Park at River Walk. Organizers said this year’s theme is "Knock Cancer off the Board.”

During Saturday’s event, there will be a program with information and free family games. It all begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m.

Relay for Life will return to the Kern County Fairgrounds on May 5 and 6.
