         The evening will include performances by a number of New Orleans area school marching bands along the race route and a post-run festival with food, drinks and live entertainment on the neutral ground outside of the Tipitina’s venue.

         Participants are encouraged to costume as their favorite musicians or band members on race day for a chance to win a prize.
