Nothing Wrong With A Little Extra!
The Louisiana Marathon prides itself on being a running festival with Lagniappe. Last year we added a little something extra to race weekend with a few additional fun events on Friday and Saturday. This year we are planning on bringing those back.
Friday Evening will once again feature a second line by the always popular, Michael Foster Project , who will help us kick off the Louisiana Marathon Festivities with a second line around the Expo that leads us to some downtown pubs. Our Pub Crawl happy hour will take us through numerous bars and restaurants downtown offering drink specials for runners and their guests.
Saturday will once again feature the Louisiana Street Food Festival. The festival was such a success last year that we’ll be co-hosting it again this year. The event, produced by My House Social, brings together innovative chefs from across the state will gather to serve their street food specialties for one day in one central location.Work up an appetite at the 5K and Quarter Marathon and then join us after the Finish Festival for eats, drinks and live music in celebration of Louisiana street food culture and community.
Eat up- a portion of proceeds will be donated to Louisiana Runs, an organization dedicated to promoting active and healthy lifestyles statewide.
