There is also a kid zone for children. 

Lafayette Reservoir Run

Traditionally held each fall in Lafayette, the annual Res Run for Education is a popular family affair that invites everyone from beginners to serious runners to participate in the 10k, 5k or the 2-mile run/walk for fun. Apart from seasoned runners, the "stroller brigade" is also welcome to participate alongside walkers and your furry, four-legged best friends.

Taste of Lafayette

Enjoy a day of live music, wine tasting, and plenty of food during the Tate of Lafayette restaurant stroll. Guests can purchase VIP food-tasting passports to taste food from 30+ restaurants. It's the city's favorite dinner party and the ideal place to enjoy friends, fantastic cuisine, and entertainment.
