1st Annual Alligator Stomp 5K

My lovely little town is great, quiet and laid back. But that means we have to drive in to the city if we want a little excitment. Most of the time. That's why I get jazzed up when a race or a festival is close to my house.

Luling's big deal of the year is the Alligator Festival at the Westbank Bridge Park in St Charles Parish. Like everything else in St. Charles Parish, the festival is fun without a big fuss. Of course, there's festival food, beer and music. But the food is Cajun food and mostly made with alligator. That may not be a selling point for you. Take my word for it, alligator meat is awesome. Like chicken but better.

This year the 31st Annual Alligator Festival is hosting a 5K for the first time. The route will either be atop the Mississippi River Levee or along River Road. This the route I run or ride every Wednesday and Saturday with Pacers Fitness

Start: Saturday, September 24, 2011 @ 9:00 AM

Under Hale Boggs Bridge Luling, LA

Online or In Person
$20 pre-registration by September 17
$15 for youths under 17 by September 24

I can't wait! Hopefully, the heat will break by then.

Y'all come join us and pass a good time
