The South Louisiana Family Festival started as Extreme Ranch Rodeo which offered Louisiana its first free admission Professional Bull Riding several years ago.

The South Louisiana Family Festival has partnered with local businesses from surrounding parishes to offer advertisement through TV, radio, public flyers, social media and the event itself.

Over the last few years the festival has added an Extreme Color Run, Car Show, and other exciting events like the Ag Farm & Fair, which focuses on keeping Agriculture alive in our community.

The festival will take place at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales between March 6-7.

Battle OCR (Obstacle Course Racing) will be one of the featured events at the festival.

The founder of the course, Sidney Morris, built the course with his wife and business partner.

The course features 24 different obstacles totaling 3.1 miles.

Morris invites anyone and everyone to try their hand at Battle OCR.

He is offering 50 percent off of the registration fee for WAFB viewers. Use “WAFB” or “GETFITBR” when registering for the race.
