On your mark, get set, go to Rock’n’Roll Mardi Gras Marathon!

The perfect endcap to a great Mardi Gras season,  this Rock’n’Roll Mardi Gras Marathon will hit New Orleans Sunday, February 28th.  Make a vacation out of it and sample all NOLA has to offer with a feel good weekend getaway.

Presenting a full marathon (or a half marathon if you please), this is the perfect excuse to splurge on calories on Friday and Saturday in the city where the food never gets boring! Beignets, po-boys galore, glorious gumbo, need I say more? If you’re not one to overindulge, the marathon also showcases some serious talent to keep you rockin through the marathon. With a live band for musical motivation at every mile mark, alongside with cheerleaders and themed water stations, the event is less of a marathon than it is a block party. What’s at the finish line you ask? A live concert of course! An opening act by Sister Hazel and a performance by Cowboy Mouth will surely keep you rocking even after you go the distance.

The concert is free to the public and will be located at the City Park finish line following the race on Sunday. For 26 miles of music, family-friendly fun all in New Orleans, book your weekend getaway now before it’s too late!
