Red Dress Run is one of my favorite events EVER. Everything in New Orleans is pretty chillax, but there are two rules that you must follow in order to participate in this event: 1) you have to wear a red dress – the more outlandish, the better and 2) have fun!
RDR takes place the second Saturday in August and is basically a huge party. For $40, if you buy your ticket the first day it goes on sale like we do, you get all the beer you can drink, a BBQ lunch, and some sort of RDR memorabilia/swag! Even with all of that cool stuff…the main reason why this event is so awesome is because ALL of the proceeds goes to local charities in NOLA!
This year, RDR celebrated its 20th anniversary, and Christine and me celebrated our 5th anniversary of participating in the event!! Each year has been truly amazing and has been a completely difference experience depending on who we go with! I’m so happy we’ve made RDR our annual girls weekend trip and already can’t wait for next year.
