LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The annual Greek Food Festival is just days away and set to bring tasty treats and music to the valley in conjunction with a 26-mile torch relay run.

It’s all taking place Friday, Sept. 10, and runs through Sunday, Sept. 12.

This year, the torch relay run will help raise money for ‘Families for Effective Autism Treatment.”

The non-profit organization provides support, programs, and help to local families impacted by autism.

The run begins with a torch lighting ceremony at 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 10 at Tivoli Village in Summerlin.

The torch will then be carried along the selected route by the various runners.

Precautions will be in place due to the triple-digit heat expected at the torch run.

Water will be on hand and distributed to runners throughout the race.
