Join us for NOLA’s favorite holiday fun run! The Allstate Sugar Bowl Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk gives locals the chance to participate in one of the most festive holiday events in the country! This 2-mile course takes participants through New Orleans City Park during their annual Celebration in the Oaks Light Display, when the park is decorated with over 500,000 lights! The day is filled with hot cocoa, pictures with Santa, a holiday costume contest, and much more!
The race, which begins in the late afternoon, is especially popular among families. Many of those running and walking this event do so with strollers or children right by their side. After the race, participants can enjoy free refreshments and complimentary entry into the walking tour of the beautifully decorated Botanical Garden, Storyland and Carousel Gardens, before the gates are open to the general public!
Children under 3 years old do not need to register to participate in the race or enter Celebration in the Oaks Light display..
