Healthy BR will host our third annual Family Fit Day, a FREE open streets initiative centered around BREC City-Brooks Park to create temporary paved parks for running, walking, bicycling, dancing, playing, and socializing on May 21st from 7:30AM-12:30PM.
During the event local organizations will offer fitness classes, speakers, healthy cooking demonstrations, kids' activities, bike safety classes, runs, bike rides and much more. Fitness classes and fitness events include a Varsity Sports run, Tai Chi, the Mayor’s Bike Ride, yoga, HIIT, karate, hip hop dancing, kid fit events, dance aerobics, circuit training, Zumba, cardio kickboxing, and a hula hoop contest.
Parking will be available in the City Brooks parking lot, or on side streets around the City Brooks park. Most major roads will be shut down around the park, so please plan accordingly.
Baton Rouge joins over 90 other cities hosting Open Streets initiatives in the United States and Canada. The streets are open to all abilities to encourage everyone in Baton Rouge who wants to improve their mental, physical, and emotional health to come out, bring their families, and even pets too!
