The Shamrock, brought to you by Painting With a Twist is Shreveport Bossier’s FIRST family-friendly color 5k and Saint Paddy’s Day block party hosted by and benefiting Cohab and Downtown Shreveport Unlimited (DSU)! The event will take place Saturday, March 16th, 2013 from 2- 6 p.m. at Festival Plaza in Downtown Shreveport!

We’ll forge a trail of color, one color every kilometer to be exact, as we run/walk up and down the Clyde Fant Parkway, and then celebrate everything Irish at Festival Plaza with a Block Party Featuring top notch refreshments, including an endless beer cup for those 21 and older, musical entertainment, and color throws!

So join us March 16th at Festival Plaza for the race and party of a lifetime (at least until next year)!

Wear white, dress in costume, run the rainbow, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
