It was decided that in 2018 the Downtown Lake Charles Crawfish Festival would hold a 3K or 5K Run/Walk Crawfish Scoot instead of a parade or pageant. The event was advertised on our web site www.downtowncrawfest.com where applications could be completed for the event.

Those participating were members of the community as well as members of our SWLA Parkinson Assembly support group and their caregivers.

What started out as a 3K or 5K Run/Walk, ended up as a 5K Run/Walk because no one, and I repeat, NO ONE turned around at the 3K mark. Medals were awarded to those completing the walk.

We are very excited about the success of this inaugural event! We look forward to continuing this event in our future festivals. The Photos below show what a great time we had promoting Parkinson Awareness in our community!
