Mobile Laser Tag of Georgia brings the battlefield to the doorstep of its customers by organizing mobile laser-tag parties that include delivery, setup, and all necessary equipment. During one of the company's events, up to 16 players dart around a backyard, neighborhood park, or any other open space while zapping opponents with advanced laser-tag weaponry. Light-up sensors keep track of eliminated players, and certified coaches stand by to monitor all the action and set up different game scenarios.
It's fun to visit a laser tag arena—but it's downright convenient when the laser tag arena visits you. Games on the Fly's mobile, 1,250-square-foot laser tag arena does just that. Up to 10 players at once engage in laser combat in the arena, lit festively with black lights and strobe lights.

The Louisiana Marathon’s inaugural race runners will traverse 26.2 miles of flat Baton Rouge terrain through an aural zephyr of live local music and the cheering of spectators during the press-praised fitness fest. When the gun goes off at 7 a.m., asphalt-slapping feet carry racers pattering past the lakes and river, sprinting through downtown, tunneling under the crayfish forest, and winding through historic neighborhoods in a race that's certified as a Boston Marathon qualifier. Each leg-lifter gets a sea of swag that includes a finisher's medal, access to the Finish Line Festival, and digital photo proof of the runner crossing the finish line. A UHF timing tag dutifully tracks dashers' times, and personalized, name-encrusted bibs protect participants eating buttered lobster as they run. The event has a multi-race format that also includes a half-marathon, 2- and 4-person relays, a 5K, and a kids' marathon in which grownups sitting in front threaten to turn this race around if runners don't settle down and stop antagonizing their younger siblings.

One of the nation's longest-standing professional artist cooperative galleries, Baton Rouge Gallery houses contemporary works from professional visual artists and promotes education through exhibits, programs, and events. Monthly exhibitions, which change out the first Wednesday of each month, allow visitors to gawk at the aesthetic talents of the gallery's artist members, including photographers, painters, and stained-glass and multimedia artists. Although everyday admission is free, as part of the gallery's elite support squad members receive free or discounted special-event admission—and in the case of patron membership, free or discounted admission for up to four guests, making it easy to mend fences after a splash fight with a gang of rival watercolorists.
