This weekend, the French Quarter played host to an annual event called the Red Dress Run. Man, woman and child all donned their fanciest red frocks to run for charity. Inevitably, the revelry spills onto the streets (and into the bars). Organizers expected 15,000 people at this year's event (although most of those folks are just watching, not running) and I heard rumors that as many as 25,000 took part!
Here are a few pictures and videos for your enjoyment. They're sure to give you a whole new perspective on the Chris De Burgh classic, "Lady in Red!"
