Take a trip to Lake Bruin in the quaint town of St. Joseph, Louisiana for the 5th Annual running of the Revive 5k. The Revive 5 is a unique race that supports the revitalization and recovery of the rural areas of Tensas Parish.  The Revive 5k run/walk will be held on May 26, 2018, at 8 am on the Saturday of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. What many consider the kickoff to “lake season.”  The race will have views of Lake Bruin and will intertwine through the beautiful and shady Lake Bruin State Park. The course will end at the local favorite, Fish Tale Grill, with food, beverages, music and a Lake Bruin reunion of sorts.

Once you have your fill of food and drinks, make your way into Downtown St. Joseph for the weekly Farmers Market held each Saturday morning (Memorial Day – Labor Day). This tailgate market offers a variety of vendors that have homegrown and handcrafted wares that are considered prizewinning without running a 5k.


Make plans to travel to Lake Bruin this Memorial Day Weekend and help support the revitalization of our small rural communities.
