The Children's Coalition for Northeast Louisiana hosts the Dia de la Familia Saturday, September 19th at Lake D’Arbonne State Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Mary Barrios says the Coalition aims to promote a healthy living and physical fitness. Fitness will be very evident at the family fun day with a color walk/run set for 8:30 AM. Registration for the walk/run begins at 8 a.m.
Besides the walk/run kicking off the day the event will also include live music, authentic Hispanic food, and kids zone.
The day originally started as a fundraiser but it transformed into a day to promote the Hispanic community as well as active lifestyles.
With almost 500 people last year, the Children's Coalition expects even more people this year.
More information is available from the Facebook event page.
