Hosted during Mardi Gras! Galveston, the Jolly Jester Jaunt 5K combines the thrill of a race with the fun of a costume party. On Saturday, February 22, runners don their most festive Mardi Gras attire and race alongside fellow participants through historic downtown Galveston. After jogging through the finish line at their own pace, participants can head to the festival beer booth for a free after-race libation. Each entry also includes a Jolly Jester–themed T-shirt, Mardi Gras medallion, and a concert ticket to a number of parades and live performances on the Jaeger stage, where live DJs spin tracks and lead seminars reminding audiences that records are not frisbees. Participants can pick up their registration packet at 21st and Strand at 9:30 a.m.
